If you land on any of the main SOFU error pages (e.g. http://meta.stackoverflow.com/error?aspxerrorpath=/) including some of the Stack Exchange beta sites (e.g. http://gaming.stackexchange.com/error?aspxerrorpath=/), the URLs being generated are missing the colon after http.

This causes the browsers to try to go to http://http//meta.stackoverflow.com.

I have tested and verified this error in Chrome 6 dev, IE8, and Firefox 3.6.

While we're at it, Meta's not coming up with a list of possible duplicates for questions... I posted about the same problem without this page (or any others for that matter) being reported to me as possible duplicates first. I deleted my question after noticing someone posted a link to this one as a comment. –  Powerlord Jul 12 '10 at 15:11
when i viewed source, the link is actually http://http://meta.gaming.stackexchange.com –  Kip Jul 12 '10 at 15:15
@R.Bemrose Part of that can be blamed on the fact that not one of the >5 reports of this issue have used similar titles and wording. –  Grace Note Jul 12 '10 at 15:20
@Grace Note: Yeah, I was kind of worried about that - I didn't quite know what to put, since it seems that the base template is affected. I didn't want to tie it to just one site since it's almost all of them. –  Joshua Jul 12 '10 at 15:26

Confirmed, with addendum: this is just the link in the text of the page. The tabs and header links work just fine.
