External link rewriten to internal causing 404

Post by stefanthorpe » Wed Dec 05, 2012 4:28 pm

Hi I have create a new site.

All looks great except the external links, for some reason Joomla appear to rewrite by external links.

For example a href pointing to www.scentline.com get written as /www.scentline.com

http://www.scentline.com gets written as /www.scentline.com and causes a 404.

Why is this happening? what can I do to fix it?

Check it out for yourself
