Incomplete URL's (7 posts)

    Sometimes I send my blog page as an email to my newsletter list. All the links contained within the source code of the page are complete... but any link within the page which is from my own blog---such as a picture or a link to another page within my blog---is incomplete. Instead of saying for example:

    http://www.myyblogg.com/picture/wp-content

    It just says

    /picture/wp-content

    So when I email the page, any links to my own site are dead, and the pictures do not show up. It requires that I manually comb the source looking for incomplete links, and pasting in the http://www.myyblogg.com --- which takes more time than I have.

    Anyone know how I can fix this?

    What version of WordPress?

    What are you using to write your posts? A blog client? A plugin editor?

    How are you adding the links or images? Specifying full urls or relative?

    Howdy,

    -- WordPress 2.04 (2.05 won't install... corruption)
    -- WysiwygPro is the plugin editor I use to write posts right within WordPress
    -- I add the links and images by simply clicking the appropriate buttons in the plugin editor. I always copy and paste the link into the dialogue box. But for some reason, only the links which originate from other sites will be added fully in the page source.

    Is that a plugin? If so, are you able to temporarily disable it and make a test post with a link to something on your site?

    HandySolo,

    I disabled the plugin, ran the test... and the links showed up as they should.

    So there is something in WysiwygPro which is doing this. I can get into the code through the plugin editor, but I have no clue what to do (I'm a writer, not a coder!)

    Any suggestions? Thanks!

    Aside from suggesting you contact the plugin author or trying a different editor, I'm afraid I can't offer much more.
