    Hi everyone and thanks for this great forum that I just discovered.

    I would like to know if there is anyway to disable the automatic check when I enter a hyperlink. I would like to enter a hyperlink that does not start with http and it does not take. If this is not possible, is there anyway to edit the generated html in text format?

    I am creating a page with links to Android Market and they should start with market://.

    You could publish the website to a local folder. Then you could open it in a text editor and find where it would say http://market:// and you would delete the http://. Then you would upload this to the FTP server. You would have to do this everytime you update the website.

    Thats is the only way that comes to mind...

    Thanks. This solution works.

    I don't like software that just assumes it knows better than me about what I want to do. Not that I don't like this kind of checking. I just want to have a way to overwrite the software's decision if I like mine better.

    Thanks again.
