.org.org[edit]

Thanks for fixing the accidental .org.org in the link to my ATT user page. I must have had CNET syndrome that day.

FYI: What you saw beginning with [//allthetropes was called a "protocol-relative link". If you follow a protocol-relative link from an http: page, it'll connect to the other server with http:, and if you do so from an https: page, it'll connect to the other server with http:. See mediawikiwiki:MediaWiki 1.18#Protocol-relative URLs. --Tepples (talk) 14:51, 16 August 2015 (MDT)

I do know what protocol-relative URIs are. However, it seems to me that if the protocol is FILE then it might not work (unless MediaWiki takes care of that on the server-side; also that they shouldn't be used between two entirely different sites)...but that is your page and you can fix how you want it to do. --Zzo38 (talk) 09:37, 18 August 2015 (MDT)
You have a good point about file: breakage. The next "Offline HTML version" will transform protocol-relative URLs into http: URLs. As for the rule "they shouldn't be used between two entirely different sites", is there an RFC or other spec documenting this? --Tepples (talk) 12:45, 18 August 2015 (MDT)
I don't know; ignore me if I am wrong. --Zzo38 (talk) 10:40, 19 August 2015 (MDT)
