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.
