Ok gang, I’ve got a client using WP as a CMS as he wants to add his email to the contact page in link format. Before you say anything, I’ve already given him “the speach” about the risk of spam and I’m entering the email addy as unicode to help prevent the problem. The issue is that even though I’m correctly setting the href in the page like this (and yes, I’m using the HTML editor, not the VISUAL editor):
WordPress somehow adds the site’s url to the front of the link so on the actual page it displays like this:
Why the hell is WP adding my site url to the front of an outgoing link? I also notice if I use a url without the http:// prefix that it does the same thing.
Does anyone have a workaround or a solution for this?
