in thread Link to searches is missing domain

I shall rephrase. It's an absolute URL, and it's missing the domain. It either needs the domain or it needs to be a relative link.

Regardless, if someone is saving that piece of text, it makes sense that in that instance it is *not* relative, since a piece of text is not specifically tied to a page.

Regardless, the URL it prints simply does not work.

    "Regardless" (as you were of Perl Monks Approved HTML tags and/or Markup in the Monastery) it would be well to know the subject well before correcting those who do. Thus, I suggest that you read What shortcuts can I use for linking to other information?.

    The "(l)ink to preload this search" to which you object works where it's intended to... as a link in a node here at the Monastery.

    It would also reflect better upon you if you demonstrated that you know that <p /> is NOT an element of the pseudo-HTML (HTML subset, mostly) used in the Monastery.

    It's an absolute URL, and it's missing the domain.

    Actually, the semantics of a URL depend entirely on the scheme. I recommend you read up on URI scheme.
    In this case, the scheme is href, which is one we've defined here at PerlMonks; its semantics do not include the specification of a domain.
    It seems that you were assuming that the semantics of href should and must be identical to those of http. That assumption is incorrect.

    ... since a piece of text is not specifically tied to a page.

    I'm having trouble making sense of that statement.

    the URL it prints simply does not work.

    Odd. You're the first and only person to have problems with it.

    Wait -- Did you trying putting it directly in your browser address bar? Of course that won't work. It needs to be interpreted by the PerlMonks rendering engine. To do that, you must insert the link (including the square brackets) in the text of a post or cb message.

    I reckon we are the only monastery ever to have a dungeon stuffed with 16,000 zombies.
      Or http://perlmonks.org/?node=href://....

        Yeah, actually that both doesn't work and would (if it did work) break the domain-preserving nature of href://.

      you must insert the link (including the square brackets) in the text of a post or cb message

      Or paste that (with or without the square brackets) into the Search box at PerlMonks.
