href to external website

kyle shapiro asked on May 31, 2017 23:32

I'm writing a transformation for a page repeater. I would like to write

<a href="">google</a>

but the resulting HTML is

<a href="[Your entire website path of this page's parent document]/">google</a>

please help me get the former instead of the latter.

For the href to work properly you need the protocol as well. The browser simply sees as a relative link because it doesn't have a protocol with it. Assign the protocol and you'll be set. It's not a Kentico "thing", it's a browser "thing" and your href needs to be in the proper format. I'd suggest ensuring the input checks for a protocol or your output checks for the protocol.
