External Link 404 Not Found (1 post)

    I've installed WordPress on a localhost and whenever I try to link to an external link from my page, the 404 error keep popping up.

    For example, I want to link to this site using <a href="http://wordpress.org">Link</a> but when I publish my page and click on the link, the error page will appear with the message:

    Not Found

    The requested URL /"http://wordpress.org/" was not found on this server.

    The address bar in my browser will display http: //localhost:8888/"http://wordpress.org/"

    Anyone can tell me how can I fix this? It seems like the server keeps on linking the external site back to the localhost?
