I have a simple body field that uses an input format with only "Limit allowed HTML tags".

If I enter a link ... say <a href="www.google.com">Test</a> The node will transform the link's href to read http://www.mydomain.com/www.google.com

If I enter <a href="http://www.google.com">Test</a>, it will work as expected.

Is there a reason why not including http:// causes this? Is there a way around it?

I was hoping Pathologic would solve this but it doesn't seem to have.

The issue is href="www.google.com" really is http://yourdomainandpath/www.google.com just as href="hello.htm" would be as well.

  • Ah. This seems to apply at the browser level.
