product_url borken after adding extra fields


Recommended Posts

I am using product_url to link to an MSDS sheet (chemical info required by the US and I think now overseas..) anyway.. in the admin add product page, in the product url box I type www.somewhere.com/page.htm

I click the Preview button and hover over the link and it is displayed correctly:



I click update


Now I go to the actual product page and the link when hovering shows:



The only MOD I can think of that might have caused this is the exta product field mod, but that is working correctly..


I tried going into redirect.php and editing out the http:// at lines 26-28:

	 case 'url':
if (isset($HTTP_GET_VARS['goto']) && tep_not_null($HTTP_GET_VARS['goto'])) {
	tep_redirect('http://' . $HTTP_GET_VARS['goto']);

changed to:

	 case 'url':
if (isset($HTTP_GET_VARS['goto']) && tep_not_null($HTTP_GET_VARS['goto'])) {


but that had no effect on the link shown in the product page, it still shows the double http://


When I click this incorrect link a new window does open but obviously nothing is produced there because of the ill formed link.. I checked another item that does not have any entry for the extra field and that URL is still wrong.


Now to test further I manage a 2nd osC store.. this one does not have extra fields MOD.. I added a similar link to a product there and after testing it does work correctly there.. so I have to assume something in the extra fields is doing this..
