iirc this sounds like a problem with a missing /
Thank you!  At last, and such a simple fix! 

One question, though, -- why would the livesite in configuration.php be wrong in the first place?  (I haven't edited it at all.)  Is that something I did wrong with the initial installation?

What was the problem in the configuration.php file?  $mosConfig_live_site?  What was the value that was in there?

Sorry, yes, I should have said. 

As Brian surmised, it was a missing / at the end of the livesite.  I don't remember being prompted to add that through the install screens, so probably I just had it as http://www.mysite.com when I filled in the forms during installation.

Hi,

This is strange, because a trailing slash on the mosconfig_live_site normally causes problems. It should NOT be there...

Q&T Note:
Regarding the original topic, I'll be closing this with status SUPERSEDED as this was an issue in older versions, moving it to Superseded forum.

iirc there can also be an issue if you give your links as www and not http://

I'm getting this problem, I've followed this thread, tried adding the / at the end of the livesite, still no joy. 

Any other suggestions please?

I was having this problem as well (using JCE editor) and all I had to do was add http:// in the beginning of my links and trailing slash at the end, then they showed up fine!
