  • This problem is not caused by wordpress. It only occurs in firefox, It could be a plugin. I don’t have a solution yet, but I am not the editor of our site, so I let it rest.

    Any ideas on this? Now the our editor also has this problem..firefox or a plugin.. is ‘helping’ to change the absloute paths in links to relative links. It is starting to become a big problem now, because we use like 5 links in every post and they are not working anymore. Anyone else had this problem?

    Did you resolve this? I’m having a similar problem see

    No I haven’t. We work around it by first editting the post where we copy the links from. then it doesn’t convert he path to a relative one.

    I will close this topic and when I have more info on this, I will use your topic.



    Ok, I open this again, because billbennett has solved his problem, but his solution didnt solve my problem.

    I found out that the content is copied fine to the windows clipboard, but when you paste it in the wordpress editor, it is changed.



    I have put this in functions.php. This doesn’t solve the problem, because the postcontent is still misformed in the database, but the links now work on the site.

    function fix_relativepathproblem($the_content){
    return str_replace(‘href=”../’, ‘href=”’, $the_content);
    add_filter(‘the_content’, ‘fix_relativepathproblem’);
