Description

We work with Joomla and WordPress.

The only place that Joomla beats WordPress, is with links (URL's).

The WP system of hard coding it often breaks things and makes working with dev/test sites difficult.

Joomla uses relative links, whereas WP uses absolute links. Using dev/test sites with Joomla is a 5 sec job and it ALWAYS works.

Absolute links are also SLOWER, as they require a DNS lookup, whereas relative links do not, so moving to relative links will also make WP faster.

Please, please, please get rid of absolute links and use relative links.
