This is rather irritating

October 10, 2008

I wonder why wordpress finds it necessary to include a http:// in the box where you’re supposed to insert a link. The link comes with that already, and if one isn’t paying attention and forgets to delete one of them, the link will not work, as I discovered just minutes ago. A commenter responded to Ivan’s latest post, that the links he’d put in were not working. After a few seconds of hemming and hawing, I figured that he’d forgotten to get rid of the extra “http://” from the link before inserting it. 

Honestly it would be a heckuva lot simpler if the add link box were EMPTY…….let the blogger insert the entire link, http and the rest of it, in there him or herself. Because if there are two occurrences of http:// in a row, the link won’t work!





  1. I noticed that also. I think it’s just something you have to get used to as it filters out people who don’t know what they are doing.

  2. Here’s a blog award to cheer you up. 🙂

  3. thanks, abfh!

    much appreciated. Someone will pass it on soon…….we’re all pretty tired though


  4. Blogger does that too and I hate it!
