#2544 closed defect (fixed)

updated path_to_root fails for links from the root

Reported by: dustin Owned by:
Priority: major Milestone: 0.8.8
Version: master Keywords: web


If request.prepath has only one element in it, then the new path_to_root returns "/" instead of "". This isn't correct, as that is an absolute, not relative, URL. It should return "./" instead.

    Generate correct relative paths even for pages in the root
    Previous code generated '/' for the path to the root, which is not
    relative and causes problems when changing paths with http proxies.
    Fixes #2544.
