Better WordPress External Links
Period in link apparently makes it appear as external (1 post)

    We have BWP External Links set up so that all *.nasa.gov links are considered internal, (nasa.gov is a forced local domain), but the following sample links appears as external.

    The Puzzling Links:

    http://forms.grc.nasa.gov/Forms/PublicUser/index.cfm?fuseaction=SEARCH.searchDetails&form_id=9876543212
    
    https://esd.nasa.gov/secure/searchengine/AttachmentServlet.cfm?docid=RKM_9999&FileName=FileNameHere_v1[2].pdf

    I performed testing by removing special characters and non-letters:

    Links no longer appear as external when a period is removed:

    Remove period between “SEARCH” and “searchDetails”

    http://forms.grc.nasa.gov/Forms/PublicUser/index.cfm?fuseaction=SEARCHsearchDetails&form_id=9876543212

    Remove period between “AttachmentServlet” and “cfm”

    https://esd.nasa.gov/secure/searchengine/AttachmentServletcfm?docid=RKM_9999&FileName=FileNameHere_v1[2].pdf

    ===========

    Note: here are our forced local domains settings (though I've tried using just one of the following, not both, with the same results)

    *.nasa.gov
    nasa.gov

    Note2: I even tried adding the following fake domains as forced local domains:

    SEARCH.searchDetails

    AttachmentServlet.cfm
