Merged idea

This idea has been merged into another idea. To comment or vote on this idea, please visit CAL-I-209 Remove the need to enter http:// in the URL provided in front end submission.

Enter website url with need for http:// Merged

I've attached screenshots with the website url field using www and the error page that link points to.  The same thing happens if you use only the domain name.  The only way for it to work correctly is using http:// protocol.  But I have businesses who upload their events and many of them don't know to use http://.  I would think this is a very common problem for people who use time.ly and have third parties upload their own events.  Can this be fixed or can there be a greyed out suggestion in the field or text underneath to prompt people to know this?

Hi Steven,

We are aware that this confuses users, but it is not easy to change this part on the current calendar (we will soon release a new calendar), but please suggest changes on Timely Product ideas page: http://ideas.time.ly/

    Thank your for this feature request. I just discovered this issue today, after using Timely calendar for a few months now. I know now how to solve this problem, by adding http:// to the website urls. But most costumers will not add this protocol when adding their url, so it would be great if it can be added as a feature that it doesn't matter if you use http:// or not when entering the url for an event.
