I’d like to use a different URI scheme under my blogroll. That is, instead of http://example.com, I want to use foo://example.com. However, when I input the latter in the ‘Address’ box and save, WordPress seem to change the address to “http://foo//example.com”.
How can I force WordPress to behave as I want it to?
(Have a look at dcpp.wordpress.com, under the “Links” category, and the link “DC development hub”, for a live example.)
Hmm – worked for me when I tested it at my site. I cleared out the address section and then just put an ftp address and the link on the site worked.
All I can suggest is to try again and if it fails send in some feedback.
It’s the adc:// that’s causing it to fail. I know URIs like ftp:// will work. That’s why I was asking.
Best bet would be to submit a feedback from your dashboard and ask for this to be supported.
I remember that last time it came up was when we were discussing skype and staff said it was a matter of it not being allowed under the XTML guidelines. That may be why it’s not in there now currently.
