I have created an ad for a merchant wanting to rent ad space on my website home page. After creating the ad, (anchor text and pic/graphics with embedded hyperlink) the merchant has requested I remove my url from the ad code. The anchor text along with the embedded hyperlinks links to the merchant's home page.
Problem is I don't know how my url was added to the code as I never inputted it in the original code in the first place. Somehow it was added by I think, WordPress or my server (PHP).
When I view the page source I do see my url was added to the ad code.
Can anyone help explain this and tell me how I can remove the url? Also, if I am able later to remove my url, how will it affect the hyperlink and anchor text?
Thank you, -Dan
I have read your answer and have now made sure the code reads as abosolute url.
Here it is with absolute url:
<strong>If you are interested in helping others treat and prevent hypertension, consider a healthcare degree from <a href="http://elearning.loyno.edu/">Loyola Online Courses today!</a></strong>
It still shows in page source however with my url addended to the code string.
What am I not understanding? Thank you!
