# \homepage - can't handle a colon in moderncv [closed]

I have been trying to use the \homepage directive of moderncv. While the URL specified in the \homepage is rendered perfectly in the PDF, the colon does not seem to take effect. When I click on the link from the PDF, it goes to http//www.google.com (note the missing :). The PDF displays the URL correctly.

I am using the latest moderncv package. Anyone else facing this issue? Any work arounds?

 So something like this doesn't work for you? \documentclass{moderncv} \moderncvstyle{classic} \firstname{John} \familyname{Doe} \homepage{www.google.com} \begin{document} \makecvtitle \end{document} – Gonzalo Medina Oct 20 '12 at 3:54 Yikes! What you said works! I was trying \homepage{http://www.google.com}. Leaving out the "http://" works. Thanks – warunsl Oct 20 '12 at 4:07
