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:
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?
