S2: relative vs absoute URLs

I have my subdomain's A record pointing to my LJ account. I changed my LJ style to S2 and have a slightly customised generator layout. Viewing my recent and individual entries lets me keep the URL which I visisted (my.domain.tld), but when I go to add a new comment, the URL becomes absolute, as opposed to relative to the entry. Also, link to 'permalink' is relative on the main (recent view) page, but is absolute in the entry view.

By absolute i mean that it's going to http://www.livejournal.com/users/username/entry.html.

I found a description of members of the Comment Class and from what I can see, the ones that I'd like to edit are string reply_url, permalink_url ? Am I right or am I looking in the wrong place? Is there a way to make my links relative by default? Is it something I can modify in my S2 layout or is it more global?

All right, I feel kinda silly now cause this is really non-technical...

But I've been using the directory search feature fore a couple of days now and I need to know the answer to this question....


I know it's not really on the profile, but why isn't it anyway? I mean my god, this is gender we're talking about here. It would really help if I could do that....


Yea, shouldn't that be a no brainer option either?

I think it's funny that we have people asking for a method to search text on journals, when the search algorithm we already have is so limited that Google is even more powerful then it. And this shouldn't be the case. We're only talking about journal profiles here, not entire journals. What do we need to do to get a search funtion that's worth it.

ANd the really sad part was that the search feature was one of the biggest reasons I wanted a paid account.
