    If it doesn't start with http then it isn't a web address ... can you give any more detail of what you mean?

    I think it has to do with the way that forum codes things, probably in their .htaccess if not in their php backend. That forum is the best place to get your question answered. Have you asked their support why they do it and how and if it can be changed?

    Do you mean when you type it into the address bar of your browser or when you are typing it into a forum post?
