I have a multi-site blog which two sites are using the file:// to link to Windows file shares. Makes managing the xls and doc easier for everyone involved. I found where someone created a plugin to allow this and it is working fine.
My issue is there are several links using file:// or http:// that the site blog admin modifies regularly. Today when they change the links the entire link changes. For example, the link is
http://server/01 access/02 documents/here is the spreadsheet.xls. If the site admin goes to edit this page and doesn't do anything but click update the link changes to something like
http://server1 access/2 document/here is the spreadsheet.xls and of course renders the link useless. The strange thing is if the multi-site admin changes the link or does the same thing the link stays in tact and functions correctly. I tried creating a new blog admin for this site but get the same results as the original admin user which makes me believe it is tied to the site but not sure how I can fix it without creating a site admin for the user to use which I don't want to do. Any thoughts on how I can correct?
