[resolved] External links turned into site links (3 posts)

    There are two links on this page http://www.meissnernordic.org/news/urgent-advoacy-needed-for-continued-funding-of-our-recreation-trails-program/ that are external links, but when you click on them you are instead routed to the current site. If you hover over them, you'll see the local site "fill in" its URL. But external links elsewhere on the post are fine.

    They are the Jeff Merkley and Ron Wyden links. All I can think of is that those links contain the same name as a page on the current site. Is there an auto fill feature I need to turn off?

    Remember to use "http://" as prefix when you put an external link ;)

    Oh crimeny, thanks. It's always the obvious things, isn't it.

    Interesting that WordPress tried to route it to a post within the site, though.
