Help figuring out 5 levels of @ indirection on Razor page RRS feed

    My code reads a website field from a database.  The field's values are things like www.google.com, www.bing.com etc without the preceding http:// (or https://).

    The MVC model returns and displays this field correctly, but I can't get it to prepend http:// and then make the entire thing clickable.

    This is the code I have:

    @foreach (var item in Model) {
       @if (item.PrimarySiteName != null)
          @Html.Raw(@("http://" + @item.PrimarySite))



    Without the @Html.Raw, the field actually displays correctly, but this code doesn't even run.  Maybe I need to use <a href=""> to wrap the prepended string.  Depending upon how I mess with the code, sometimes the double slash is interpreted as a comment ( when I use @{ } for example ).  How can I get this link to display and be clickable?

    You forgot the anchor (<a>) tag.

    <a href="http://@item.PrimarySite">Link</a>
