HTML links to external sites broken in project updates


I recently tried to update my project page with links to an external website. I used the standard HTML <a href="">link text</a> method, but iNat added the URL of the journal to the link when I posted.

So <a href="https:/">training link!</a> took me to:”https:/”, which obviously does not exist.

Am I missing something very obvious, or is this a bug where iNat is trying to redirect internally for some reason?

Thanks for any suggestions.

not a bug. you need 2 backslashes after https:.

Oh my goodness, thank you. Clearly my brain was not functioning fully!
