[Resolved] [Plugin: People Lists] Unable to create links

  • I am unable to create links inside the template
    example:
    Twitter

    Instead of creating a link to my users twitter account, wordpress is adding my sites url in front of the user submitted information. so the link ends up looking like “www.mysite.com/www.twitter.com/username”

    I am pretty sure I am overlooking something pretty simple. At least I hope that is the case.

    any help is appreciated, thanks so much!

    @enej

    Hi
    you need to put
    http:// infront of the http://www.twitter.com/username
    so you have something like
    http://www.twitter.com/username

    Cheers

    Yeah I figured it out and forgot to come say something on the forum. Thanks though!

    Hi enejb

    You’ve helped me in the past with a couple of issues and was hoping you could again.

    I’m posting here becuase this is ‘close’ to the type of issue I’m having. I think.

    I have a contact list and some of those contacts (not all) have biography pages elsewhere in the wordpress site. I’d like to link to those pages for some of the people.

    However, like helphelpmehonda I’m getting strange URLs returned, or having the ‘before element being incorporated into the URL thus breaking it.

    Here are a few test I tried;
    <div class =’user-info’>Bio</div>
    <div class =’user-info’>Bio</div>
    <div class =’user-info’>%website%</div>

    If I don’t include the a href I don’t get the hyper link.

    I mentioned that not all of the contacts have biographies becuase whilst I can code in ‘Biog’ in to the template it will simply appear in all instances with a link to the root page.

    Can you help this idiot?
