Title: Problem with Link in Signature
Post by: Andrew Cooper on February 21, 2005, 10:32:27 AM
This is just a small website problem I seem to be having.  My signature contains a link to the website of a game I am working on, it isn't working exactly right.  I made the href code on the HTML point to eo4s.intrados.net but the site automatically is inserting www.indie-rpgs.con/ in front of it.  Is there any way to stop this behavior?

Did you enter it as:
Code:
[url=http://eo4s.intrados.net]Earth of the Fourth Sun[/url] a fantasy role-playing game.

I suspect you didn't add the "http://" thus the computer thinks that the link is to a sub-directory of the current site (ie, indie-rpgs.com).

I think if you designate the entire url (i.e. "http://eo4s.intrados.net") it should work differently.  But I will admit that I haven't (myself) tried to link to a URL that doesn't start with "www", so maybe that's the issue instead.

Yup.  Not putting in the http:// was screwing it up.  Thanks.
