inserted links default to wp-admin folder (4 posts)

    I just upgraded to version 2.5 and, after scratching my head, I've found that when I insert a link to another page on my site, it seems to default to the wp-admin folder when I publish it. I use the default permalink structure (if that's related).

    For example, if I needed to make a link to a page, I would type this into the insert link window:

    and it worked just fine until I upgraded to version 2.5. After doing that, if I type the same think into the insert link window, it is transformed to the following after saving or publishing the post:

    Which causes the admin login page or the dashboard to display instead of the desired page or post.

    Am I doing something wrong or is there a setting I need to change? I really don't want to have to type my domain each time I make a link, and I didn't have to before I upgraded. Can someone help?

    Yeah, it looks like absolute URLs are the way to go. Or see this topic:

    Thanks! I figured that it had been addressed in another thread but I wasn't able to find it. Is there some way to get wordpress to stop putting the wp-admin part in there when forming the absolute url? I can type in ../folder every time but I'd rather not.

    If you use an absolute address, it shouldn't reform it. If you have just a small number of addresses that you repeatedly link to, copy them to a text file for a quick copy and paste. Or try this plugin:
