Hello, I'm a newb.. going through the tutorial.

V. 3.0.6

I believe I've followed the tutorial correctly (copy / paste), but I'm getting a weird action with:

<?php echo form_open('news/create'); ?>

When I look at the source it shows:
<form action="<mydomain>/CI306/index.php/news/create" method="post" accept-charset="utf-8">

It does not list the protocol in the URI (http://), so my browser (firefox) treats it like an extension of the query string.. thus producing a URL of:


The docs show I am using form_open() correctly:

Quote:Here’s a simple example:
echo form_open('email/send');

The above example would create a form that points to your base URL plus the “email/send” URI segments, like this:
<form method="post" accept-charset="utf-8" action="

Any advice appreciated.  I can force the correct URL by adding the entire query string with the protocol, but that sure seems clunky.

Did you set your ./application/config/config.php base_url[] ?

Hi, thx for the reply. Yes. I was missing the protocol in the base URL. Adding it fixed the main issue.
