link to external site has IP addy of webserver prefixing it--404 error
I am a tinkerer and am self hosting some sites on a linux box and am seeing some odd behavior. Using either kompozer or blue griffon i set a link to an external site--check the box "relative to page location"
and the source code looks right with the normal a href "www.external site" </a> link text</a> ....however when clicking the link it prefixes it with the IP addy/port of the webserver then the link to the external site and of course I get a 404 as the address is hokey. if I uncheck the box relative to page location it has the ///var/www/html/path to index.html
I have setup pages previously and have not seen this occur...any ideas of why this is occuring?
