Discussion about linking to external sites in the new post feature

Original Slack Thread

Hi all - the new post feature is amazing! Thank you to the dev team for working on it :slightly_smiling_face: just wondering whether it’s possible to link to external sites? Currently it’s just appending to our Datahub domain and giving a 404 error. Wondering if anyone’s been able to create a link outside of Datahub?

hey <@U059NLXBL8G>! yes I believe this issue comes up when you don’t prefix your post url with https:// - if you just add www.then unfortunately you’ll see the behavior you’re talking about right now
