#4922 closed defect (fixed)

Prepend http:// when redirecting profile links, if not present

#4753 obfuscated profile links by passing them through an internal redirection system, e.g. https://profiles.wordpress.org/website-redirect/dd32.

Some URLs lack the http:// prefix and result in a "User not found" message instead of the redirect.

To reproduce:

  1. Go to https://profiles.wordpress.org/drosendo/.
  2. Click the Website URL.
  3. You're redirected to https://profiles.wordpress.org/website-redirect/www.rosendo.pt.
  4. The page displays a "User not found" error message, instead of proceeding with the redirect.
