Different URI scheme for blogroll links

    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.)

    Regards,
    Fredrik Ullner

    Might help us if you told us what specifically you were trying to do instead of making us guess.

    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.

    Agreed although some specificially won’t work like skype: as they’re being specifically removed or modified. That’s why i was asking. :)

    Oh? I didn’t realize WordPress was selecting which URIs to allow or disallow.

    Anyway, the scheme I want to use is “adc://”. [“adc://example.com:80”] (ADC is a protocol in development for the Direct Connect network.)

    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.

    I’ll do that, then.

    Thanks.
