    Hi guys,

    I am struggling with a few things but I will kick off with this simple one for now. I am trying to make a work a link with the following line of code;

    <p style="color: white;">Andrew can be found on <a href="www.linkedin.com/pub/andrew-/b/a8/71a">LinkedIn</a></p>

    My problem is when I do this, then click on the newly updated word on the site, it says that it cannot find the link on my self hosted server. How do I amend the link to point it out to the internet?

    Probably simple, so I apologise in advance.

    Thanks

    If you mouse over the link, you should see where that link goes to. For example in Chrome, I can see where the link goes to in the bottom left corner of the browser when I over over the link. If you do that does it show this? http://www.linkedin.com/pub/andrew-/b/a8/71a

    It shows my internal server address first and then the linkedin address after as if it is looking for LinkedIn on my server;
