Problem with links in posts
When I upgraded to 1.2.4, a problem appeared with links in posts. When the link is clicked, the actual URL generated is prefixed by the URL of the website. Here's an example:

Post html is:

http://www.ecnmag.com/Blogs/2011/12/Some-More-Tools-I-Like/

Link generated is:

http://74.54.219.242/~allan/cgi-bin/gforum.cgi?url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.ecnmag.com%2FBlogs%2F2011%2F12%2FSome-More-Tools-I-Like%2F

Any ideas? Thanks.

Hi,

What do you see when you edit the post? What format does the [url] part of the post take? (sounds like its probably mis-formed)

Cheers

Here's another strange thing about the problem. The URLs are only mis-formed when I am looking at posts while logged in to the forum. If I look at the same post as a guest, the URL is correct.

Allan's issue was that his Path's and URLs configuration for the URL to his gforum install was incorrect. Fixing those fixed the issue.
