Got a bug to report for y'all Zim people. When one puts in a hyperlink, and neglects to include the http://, the link goes to http://wienerville.slashwrestling.com/www.whateversite.com/. As an example, check this link.

That's not a bug - that's you needing to learn proper HTML.

(You should Edit your post with the buggy link, too. It's just the polite thing to do!)

The buggy link was there as an example. I'm pretty handy with the html as you can see, and I've never seen that before. Of course, I'm not sure how to take that comment from a guy whose site looks like it was designed on, and optimized for a Commodore 64.

That's standard HTML there actually. If you dont put an http:// in front, it assumes you are calling a relative url, and so it uses the base url of the site plus whatever you typed.

It's just like when I put a jpeg at the root of wienerville and call it without using a full url, just <a href=boo.jpg>.





I love it when a plan comes together

I did not know that. That's wild.
