Stop using protocol agnostics links in emails

    Speaking of inline (oneboxed?) images: their href is //what.thedailywtf.com/path/to/fullsize.image, which works fine in browser, but doesn't work in e-mails (since the default protocol there isn't http). Can this be fixed so that the protocol is included in e-mail notifications?

    Protocol agnostic is great on sites you control, less useful on random email clients



  • Well, I think that's actually because (AFAIK) we don't have HTTPS here at all.



  • Hmmm this is weird because our emails already replaced protocol relative links to images with the full schema -- that code has been in place since last year, although I did find a bug where it would choose http even on an https site but I don't think that would be the problem here.

    @ender any chance you can forward me the email for testing purposes? It's my first name dot last name at gmail.

    Protocol agnostic links should no longer be in emails.
