Whenever I post a link to an external site, for some reason SharePoint changes the domain name to the server domain name. E.g. If I post google.com/new-url, it will change it to mysite.com/new-url.

I've looked at the Content Type, the list, re-created the list several times - nothing works. Any ideas?

    What happens if you include the protocol part of the url e.g. http :// <your url>

  • With or without the protocol does the exact same thing. Apr 26, 2012 at 6:30

Have you checked for an attached event receiver? maybe itemadding event receiver that is attached on the list/content type? You can use the SharePoint Utility Pack - http://spstipsutilitypack.codeplex.com/ - to check whether you have an event receiver attached or not...
