When you add a link to a subweb in the Quick Launch bar of a SharePoint team Web site, or when you add a link to the Custom Link bar of a FrontPage Web with FrontPage 2002 Server Extensions from Microsoft, the link may not appear on the page. The link that is added appears in normal view and in preview, but it does not appear when you actually go to the page by using your browser.

The Link Bar Properties dialog box is not writing the complete URL of the subweb.
