External Links on Menu issue

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?


I updated to TP 2.2.2

Still have the same issue.

Did you choose menu type LINK?

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....



Yeah, you must put the full link into the field ...
