    Hello Fellow WP users,

    the last week and a half have been a pain in the a$$, for some reason my external links are automatically adding my url before them.

    I haven't made any changes... literally, any that would've resulted in this. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    EX craftcreativemarketing.com (external link) would link to:
    http://jessefogarty.com/blog/(post)/craftcreativemarketing.com

    Thank you in advance for your time and support.

    Jesse

    Ensure you you use full urls (eg http://some_site.com/) when inserting links in WordPress.

    I've been using wordpress for more than a year in case you're under the assumption I'm new. But thanks for taking the time to respond.

    Then have you tried the basic troubleshooting steps:

    - deactivating all plugins to see if this resolves the problem. If this works, re-activate the plugins one by one until you find the problematic plugin(s).

    - switching to the Twenty Eleven theme to rule out any theme-specific problems.

    - resetting the plugins folder by FTP or PhpMyAdmin. Sometimes, an apparently inactive plugin can still cause problems.

    - re-uploading all files & folders - except the wp-content folder - from a fresh download of WordPress.

    I've tried all of the steps you've mentioned above but it seems as nothing's working. I would assume that these would be a last resort effort - would it be safe to assume it's than the theme causing this?

    Again thank you for the quick response much appreciated

    None of the above are a "last resort". As I said, this is basic troubleshooting.

    Well considering I'm no coder I assumed it was. Do you know of any FAQ pages on advanced wp troubleshooting?

    There is no FAQ for this. Every site/issue is different. Have you carried out all of the steps I listed above?
