 When using the image widget and adding a custom URL, I noticed that
 relative links are not supported.

 Adding a relative link to the widget result in an error being shown(red
 highlighted box) and then the widget doesn't save.

 I think this may be a feature not a bug, but I can think of a few times
 when you might want to be able to put a link there without including the
 'http' or 'https.'

 Like if you want to add an anchor instead of a link, like #some_div

 or if you want the link to work regardless of whether HTTP or HTTPS is
 being used.
