External Links on Menu issue
« on: May 14, 2022, 01:49:57 PM »
Link to my forum: https://www.firehawkgames.biz/
SMF version: 2.0.19
TP version: 2.1.0
Default Forum Language: English
Theme name and version: Jane
Browser Name and Version: Opera (latest version)
Mods installed: Post and PM Inline Attachments, Dice Roller BBCode, Stop Spammer (plus SMF 2.0.19 & TinyPortal itself)
Related Error messages: No Error message

I haave a main menu where I have several things on in, including  2 external links (links to other websites).

However, TinyPortal is apparently adding my site's URL to the front of them, thus breaking the links.

Any ideas on how to correct this?

Yes, I did. and in the menu admin stuff, it shows the link as it should be, but  in the live box on the side, it adds in the base URL of the site.

I figured it out....

if you do NOT put http:// or https:// at the front of your link, it adds the site URL to the front....


Doh!
