Make editor use relative links

    The post editor uses absolute links for images. I think using relative links would be better since it makes it easier for you to move your WP blog to any other directory (and changing URL in Options).

    I think relative links would make troubles with some permalink settings so they are recommended absolutely :-).

    I've had to go through and change all my relative links to absolute as they don't work in feeds. I veto this idea until WordPress can handle identifying when those relative links need to be changed automatically into absolute links behind the scenes.

    there are plugins for lorelle's problem. I'd love the option to choose relative links.

    I'd love to see relative links too. It would make moving to a different directory/server much easier.

    At a bare minimum, image links can be modified by hand after they are inserted using the HTML editor.

    I'd like to see relative links also, personally. I think the reason they don't use them has to do with RSS or something. I'll bring it up when we start discussing features for 3.1. Closing for now.
