I think what what Marcus is looking for isn't how WP is designed. sure 
there are workarounds (i believe there always is one, you just have to 
look), but I also believe in using the right tool/framework/platform for 
the job. Think of WP using absolute urls as a feature and consider that 
when picking a platform to work with.

WP isn't designed for everybody, and I"m sorry but I side with with 
absolute urls too. It's not because I prefer it and I do use  relative 
urls when I can, but it's mainly because of two things: 1)MAJORITY of 
the users won't care  2) it's how WP was built and changing this is 
going to break many things and I personally believe it's not worth the 

My point is, if you absolutely need relative urls in your project, then 
do what Otto says: "Feel free to not use it."

I don't mean this to be sarcastic in any way. It's what I'd do too. Pick 
a platform (EE, Drupal, WP) depending on the requirements. if none of 
the platforms don't meet the requirements (usually due to some crazy 
weird setup) and creating the custom stuff will be too much work, (have 
only encountered this once) then I drop the project. Could be hard at 
first but you'll get used to it. And here's one thing you'll realize, 
there's no shortage of projects when your good in what you do =)

No one's forcing you to use WP. I personally think it's not that great 
compared to the two other platforms I mentioned (EE, Drupal), but I 
don't go all out always using Drupal when all the project needs is a 
blog. See what I mean?

> You beat me to it.  And I apologize for my tone, I don't mean that towards anyone but Otto, and only him because he replies in kind and has done so for years on these forums.  He likes to think his way is the right way and everyone else does it wrong.
