Linking Questions
« on: January 28, 2013, 03:35:15 PM »
Howdy guys, I wanted to pick the community's collective brain about how to do something in Wordpress.  I've just released my Marvel Adventures mod, and I made a page for it on my blog.  However, because the link is a direct one to the file that Cat is hosting, it seems like the linking button on the editor messes it up.  See, the link is this:
greylands.freedomforceforever.com/ma.zip
But when I try to enter that in the box that the link button creates, the resultant link just tells me "file not found."  I'm guessing it is trying to add an http: before the link address itself.  Does anyone around here know how I could get around this?
God Bless

When you enter the link into the prompt that pops up, you probably SHOULD include the "http://" part. Otherwise, is there any reason you can't manually enter the code yourself?

EX: <a href="http://">TEXT HERE</a>

I swear, I tried that earlier and it didn't work!  Arg!  Anyway, that did it.  Thanks Prev!
