  • I have only used markdown a handful of times and like how it works.

    If I follow the permalink on a post the relative links no longer work. I have recently turned on fancy archives and I’m sure that is the problem. It is looking for the relative link at /2005/2/etc… Is there a way for relative links to work or is it just neccesary to use absolute links?
