I've followed the directions of adding the completed Google+ url to my contact info in WordPress, but the link code is being displayed within the code as relative.
For example - in WordPress, I put in https://plus.google.com/117322785505925462671?rel=author but in the code, I see:
<link rel="author" href="117322785505925462671?rel=author"/>
So when I go to verify it - Get the following error
linked author profile = http://www.hotsauceblog.com/117322785505925462671?rel=author <strong>Error: Author profile page does not have an authorship link to a Google Profile. Learn more.</strong>
Which is incorrect because the profile is verified - but it's basing it on the way that the author code is being inserted into the Yoast Plugin within the header. I've manually added the correct code for now - but does anyone know why this is happening?
