<strong>Note:</strong> When visiting <a
href=""></a> it
automatically redirects to this page<a
target="_blank">: </a><a title="Secure contact form over https
? (libtech note..)

Subject: HTTPS links on wordpress blog post have S removed
automatically, odd

I was setting up a 'secure' https contact page at:

But when I post a link on the above blog page, it is overwritten by to remove the S in HTTPS, this is odd.

In summary when I add this link to the blog:


it becomes:

Clearly this action seems to be hard coded into - I have
replicated this problem a nuber of times, ensured I do not have a chache
of the old page and added a ? after the link to ensure it is the latest
version of the blog post.

I cannot expect visitors to this page to have the HTTPS Everywhere
add-on enabled, at least when I auto redirect to this page from it does at least stay on the HTTPS
