Link to a pdf file from main menu (redlounge)

I have a website with theme redlounge (using Hugo 0.15) in which I have a main menu directing the user to the different parts of the website. All the links in the menu that lead to Hugo generated pages work fine. However, one of the links is to my CV, which I have as a pdf file in the ‘static/files’ folder. And in the generated website, the link does not direct to the file, producing an error. This is the entry in the menu:

    name = "CV"
    url = "/files/cv.pdf"
    weight = 100

and this is how the link appears on the website:

Which obviously doesn’t work. Do you have any idea of what I need to do to make this work properly?

Thank you for your help.

This should be fixed in 0.16. A Workaround in 0.15 is to use abolute URL in url.
