Important information on the links:

If you are linking to a page external to your own website, you can use the absolute URL e.g. http://externaldomain.com/contact

However if you are linking to a page within your own website, we recommend to use the relative URL e.g. /contact

This will ensure consistency and no broken links on your website if at some point you switch to a new domain name for your website. 

6. An additional popup will appear, use the Cancel button. We don't want to prefix our URL with "http://:".
