I have an issue where I am using a live DB locally - whenever someone creates a link or a redirector page within the CMS on a live site to a page within the live site, but not in the sitetree (e.g. for a director rules added page like www.mysite/Secrity/Login or where a parameter is given to a page - so again is not in the sitetree) they are creating it with "http://www.mysite.com/urlsegment" - where as to access the site locally I want to use "urlsegment".
These are being added to the "external" website - is there a workaround to allow custom pages on the same site but without providing the "http://www.mysite.com/" bit?

Couldn't the user just enter the relative URL i.e urlsegment rather than the full path?

If I put just the url segment the redirector redirects to the just the urlsegment (no $BaseURL prefixing it)
And if I put a urlsegment into the link - it prefixes http:// when I hit "Insert Link"
am I doing something wrong - is this not the case in the latest version? if so it's yet another reason to upgrade

Did you try putting a slash before it?
That should render as an url relative to your site's top level.
Alternatively, see my screenshot attached. This seems to work for me.

thanks for the help but both prepending "/" or "[sitetree_link_id=]#/" didn't have the desired result - the links were still being shown as http://<whatever I type> instead of being relative to the URL. If this works for you what version are you on?

thanks - as I suspected yet another reason to up the version...
