Links added in a certain Tiki instance to that same Tiki instance should be wiki links when the target is a wiki page. If not, they should be relative links as much as possible, rather than absolute links. Using relative links eases domain name changes, and facilitates the management of several environments (for example, synchronizing a production environment with a development environment, like nextdev.tiki.org vs dev.tiki.org).
There may be cases where an absolute link is best, but these should be rare. When a user adds an external link to self with an absolute URL - for example "http://tiki.org/Foo" - which starts with one of the Tiki site root's base URL-s - for example "http://tiki.org/" - Tiki should detect the situation and convert to a relative link - for example "/Foo" - unless the user really wants an absolute URL.
One vector through which URL-s are commonly inserted is the External Link tool in the toolbars of parsed text fields. This tool should be modified to detect attempted insertions of absolute links to self and offer the user conversion to relative.
I imagine there should be an administrative preference to control behavior - either automatically convert to a relative link, or prompt users. Should there be more options?
I believe the default should be to prompt users.

Unable to connect to show2.tiki.org. Please let us know of the problem so that we can do something about it. Thanks.
Show.tiki.org is currently under maintenance. Sorry for the inconvenience.
Unable to get information from show2.tiki.org. Please let us know of the problem so that we can do something about it. Thanks.
Show.tiki.org is in the progress of creating the new instance. Please continue waiting for a minute or two. If this continues on for more than 10 minutes, please let us know of the problem so that we can do something about it. Thanks.
To help developers solve the bug, we kindly request that you demonstrate your bug on a show2.tiki.org instance. To start, simply select a version and click on "Create show2.tiki.org instance". Once the instance is ready (in a minute or two), as indicated in the status window below, you can then access that instance, login (the initial admin username/password is "admin") and configure the Tiki to demonstrate your bug. Priority will be given to bugs that have been demonstrated on show2.tiki.org.
The URL for the show2.tiki.org instance that demonstrates this bug is at: http://. Note that if you get a popup asking for a username/password, please just enter "show" and "show". This is different from the initial login and password for a new Tiki which is "admin" and "admin".
For the install log, see http:///info.txt
Note that if you see PHP errors or a Tiki claiming to be missing third party software, the instance creation is probably not finished. Please wait a couple minutes and reload.
Snapshots are database dumps of the configuration that developers can download for debugging. Once you have reproduced your bug on the show2.tiki.org instance, create a snapshot that can then be downloaded by developers for further investigation.
Snapshots can be accessed at: http:///snapshots/. Note that if you get a popup asking for a username/password, please just enter "show" and "show".Create new snapshot
