When I try to insert a home page link in my articles by pasting the URL in the URL input box, it does not work.
However, if I choose the home page from the link browser-menu drop down list, it works!
What I am am confused is on 2 counts:
1. It is not accepting the SEF URL of the home page only (mysite.com), whereas it works fine with SEF URLs of sub-pages.
2. And, for the home-page URL: when a non-sef url (index.php?option=com_content&view=frontpage&Itemid=1) is entered, it works like a charm.
I also changed the SH404sef setting and skipped JCE in it's configuration but still it is not accepting the SEF URL of the home page.
