External Links Treated As Internal Links

  1. I just installed WP 4.9 and created a test post with a link to http://www.google.com.

    But when I click on the link in either preview mode or the published post, the link tries to go to:
    http://www.mysite.com/post-1/www.google.com

    So in other words, it is treating my external link as an internal link.

    I'm sure this is something simple, but I can't figure out what I'm doing wrong.

    Anybody know?

    Thanks.
     
  2. Sounds like you've forgotten to add https:// at the start of the link.
     
  3. What Kevin said. Simple fix :)
