    HI,
    I have added an About page but all links I put into it start with the URL of the site. I want to point somewhere else off of the site but all links including email links have the URL of the directory at the beginning.

    Can I stop this pre-pending of the directory URL? As you edit the code it looks correct, but the pre-pend is there once you save he About page.

    Thanks for the help,

    Can you give an URL for me to take a look?

    Simon,
    I did add the suggested 2 lines of code but it didn't make a difference. Then I noticed that they were already there, but the page still pre-pended. Any more ideas?
    Thanks,

    Greetings Michael,

    could you please described detailed steps on how to reproduce this error. I will try it on my local copy.

    I open the about page for editing and add text as well as links and my email address. Then I look at the code and it all looks correct - the links do not have the pre-pended base URL of the website. When I save the page it pre-pends the base URL of the site.

    That's it.

    What do you think?
    Thanks,

    Did not I mention you should have modified the page again? Oops, my fault. Try to delete it and recreate. I'm sure this should help you.

    Simon and Vincent,
    That did it. I changed the About page text and links and the links no longer have the base url pre-pended to them.

    Moving right along and knocking them down one at a time.

    Thanks for the help.
