mangled relative href links

Post by feat »

It looks like there's a problem when rendering hyperlinks to html: if the links are specified as an absolute URL, there won't be any problem; but if they're relative to a local subfolder, they will be rendered with a "http://" prefix anyhow, and they won't work.

I mean, instead of: href="subfolder/somefile"
this is what I'll get: href="http://subfolder/somefile"

What am I doing wrong?

This doesn't happen with image src links, which properly refer to the local image folder.

This is indeed a bug. When you enter a hyperlink in NWP it will automatically prefix "http://" if no protocol is specified. This unfortunately prevents the use of relative URLs for hyperlinks. We'll file a bug, thanks.

The 1.0.2 release doesn't fix this issue, even though it says it does on the leopard-notes page — 10th line...

I think that 1.0.2 is still beta. Martin mentioned something about Nisus continuing to check it out once Leopard was publicly released, and then releasing 1.0.2.

The 1.0.2 release should fix this bug. I'll take a look and make sure it does.

Also, the best way to contact us about bugs in our software (especially beta software) is using the menu Help > Send Feedback.
