I have a publishing site migrated from SharePoint 2007 to 2010. I am trying to add relative URL under Navigation.

My URL looks like this '/Sites/SiteColl2/Pages/Default.aspx'. The URL I am trying to add is of different site collection. After adding this URL when I click 'OK' on 'AreaNavigationSettings.aspx' page I get 'File Not Found.' error.

If I add absolute URL like 'http://domainname.com//Sites/SiteColl2/Pages/Default.aspx' it works perfectly fine. But requirement is to add relative URL.

Please suggest me if you have any solution.

Appreciate your inputs.
