If no protocol is provided then prepend the current path instead of just http://

So should I just prepend the forum base URL?

Another possibility would be to only convert "URLs" with trailing slashes to a relative URL, so that something like

would become

on this server, for example.

Do you mean leading rather than trailing?

That might be a good idea, though to be honest I'm not incredibly fussed either way.

I was considering using the current URL, but that would then be messy if you have the posts displaying in different places - like we do on the homepage. So yes, probably use the base URL (using get_base_url(true) so it supports https).

Yes, I meant leading. wink

And that's how I will do it now. Good point.
