    WordPress is messing up my hyperlinks again – on http://ecogrrl.net/2013/01/31/the-ecogrrl-interview-kara/ the link to anudibranch.wordpress.com does not take you to that actual blog, it gives a broken link instead (as you can see when you hover over it, it’s not right. help!

    The blog I need help with is ecogrrl.net.

    Hi there,

    It looks like when you are putting in the URL to the Insert/Edit URL field, you are putting in this:
    anudibranch.wordpress.com/

    but you need to put in the entire URL, like this:

    http://anudibranch.wordpress.com/

    If that’s what you did, please let me know! Otherwise, it looks like that is your culprit.

    Cheers!

    Nope I put in the full link, then wordpress filled in a longer link that’s broken.

    The link looks fine to me now – are you still having any issues with this?

    When we accidentally leave off the “http://” portion of a link, the system automatically creates a URL that consists of the entire address of our post, with the new link appended to the end.

    So in this case, the link may have looked like:

    http://ecogrrl.net/2013/01/31/the-ecogrrl-interview-kara/anudibranch.wordpress.com/

    Is it possible that you simply accidentally forgot the http:// part?

    Hi there,

    I’d like to dig a bit deeper on this. Could I trouble you to make a draft post (it can be really short – just a line) and add a link – so I can take a look and see if the editor is grabbing your links and doing something funky to them?

    Cheers!
