  • @blueli The http(s):// is the protocol part of the URL; it tells the browser that it’s an external link. An href without a protocol is treated as an internal link.

    If you’re removing the protocol for display reasons, you should save that to a separate variable instead.

    Also, if you want to remove trailing slashes, there is a native WP function called untrailingslashit() or trailingslashit() for the opposite effect.

    Good luck!
