This is rather irritatingOctober 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!
