      I have a SharePoint list (which we are using DFFS on). On this list I have a Publishing HTML field where we insert the draft of an email to be sent out. In this field when we insert a URL it automatically gets changed to a relative URL rather than the absolute URL. We have added it using the ribbon as well as hot keys. This is not a problem when we are within the site, however when our workflows send the email the relative URL is not going to work. Does anybody know of a way to force SharePoint to leave the absolute URL?

      PS – my current work around is to have them use a tinyurl rather than the absolute url. When using the tinyurl it tricks SharePoint to believe it needs to keep it as an absolute URL.

      Sorry for the delay. I’m afraid this is how SharePoint handles URL’s in rich text editors. If you want to have a full URL in this multi line field, you need to use a plain text field instead.
