non-http links (4 posts)

    I am sure I am not the first one to ask this question, but couldn't come up with the right search to look for the possible thread.

    I am noticing an interesting behavior in my WordPress installation where if I, as an Administrator, enter into a post some non-http href (e.g. test), the post is saved without any interference, but when a non-admin user (such as an Author) puts a link like that, the "foo://" part is substituted with "http://".

    In my scenario I'd like to be able to give my Authors the power to post some non-http links. Let me know. Thanks.

    If they don't use the wysiwyg editor they should be able to.

    Right and if they do, let them try using the "hyperlink" button.

    Hm... strange. I tried both ways using Safari and Flock browsers against two different WordPress installations using both an Administrator and an Author. The result is as I described above. These are WordPress 2.0.3 right now. Perhaps there is a known bug? Again, any help is appreciated...
