Wierd Link Phenomena
When I insert relative links into my web page.
Apparently when my friends test it out, all the links are broken, because apparently that computer takes the whole URL as the directory...
maybe the root url is
and the page you're viewing is
the relative link < a href = " gohere.php " > Go Here! < / a >
so the user ends up on the same page.
what is causing this phenomena.
i appears to be browser independent. I'm using IE 6. My friends are using IE 6 too, but on different operating systems (Win98/ME - For Me I use XP)
Are you using dreamweaver to link your pages up? If so - that probably explains why it's trying to link into a directory that doesn't exist, maybe you selected the root URL as the root site directory?
An easy way to solve this, if the site is small enough, is to handcode the links. That way you have ultimate control over the site.
Another way may be to change the relative links to absolute, and ensure that the link is to the page name only, no directories.
Can you give us a URL so we can take a look?
it only works on some browsers though...

register & try to click on the links to the quizzes. Depending on your config, the links won't work, although the (X)HTML code looks OK to me.
