Relates to: U4-844
The related links data type in Umbraco allows you to pick either internal or external URL's. The internal URL's are chosen with a picker, and the external URL's allow you to type in a URL. However, the data type prefixes "http://" to external URL's overzealously. For example, here are examples where it produces an incorrect URL...
I propose that the related links data type be modified to either not prefix anything to external URL's, or be modified to add a third type of link (e.g., "Verbatim URL").
By the way, it'd be nice to be able to suffix a query string/hash to the end of an internal URL (that's more of a feature request than a bug, but thought I'd mention it in case anybody feels like tackling that when they fix the bug).
Note, take a look at the "Multi-Url Picker" data type from the uComponents package. There is currently a movement to get this included into the Umbraco Core over at U4-844 if you wanted to see the progress on this. It fixes several problems with and seems to do everything that Related Links does, and more. Good luck!
If a better alternative to related links is available, this would be mostly unnecessary.
