I go into to my global settings and see the menu contents; the link was originally pointing at an internal page, but I want to repoint it an external one, so I change its type to "link to the web", and put in my URL. But it's misrendered, appending my absolute URL to the current domain, so if my site is at:
and I set the link target to
the URL in the resulting link is rendered as
This is of course completely useless! This link goes to a 404 page, but retaining the URL, and since the menu appears on that page too, the link then offers to send me to
and I can keep going, adding a bit more to the URL with each click. Note the strange munging of
/, and it stripping the trailing

/ – here it is in the UI:
It's also very odd because I saw in other posts that prismic doesn't support relative links?!
So why won't prismic link to a simple absolute URL?
