suggestion reg bug with 'link' quicktag (3 posts)

    I've seen that if the user does not include http:// in the link quicktag, it breaks. I also heard from my friends that it is a known WP bug and work is on to fix it.

    Until then it would be great if a one line warning appears on the pop-up where we enter the URL to include http://. I do know that it appears by default, but users tend to overwrite it.

    The http:// is already there. All you have to do is not type over it. What's the "bug"?

    It's actually more of a "bug" that if you cut and paste the URL from the browser bar, you can end up with "http://http://" if you aren't careful.

    Please read the entire post (and airquotes still suck). I said that ' I do know that it appears by default, but users tend to overwrite it'. I manage 6 WP run blogs, and have had to deal with this issue many many times.

    Also, I didn't say it was a bug. Anyways, its basically directed towards the UI guys. It's just a design issue.
