#3107 closed defect (fixed)

_get_trust_root() not quite right.

Cc: Trac Release: 0.11


The _get_trust_root() method doesn't always work right. Attached is the simple fix for just the case I ran into. (I set TRAC_BASE_URL and it caused href() and abs_href() to return non-overlapping parts of the URL).

The correct solution is probably to normalize the URL somehow. I think the openid library has something for that.

What is your base_url? I have trac site running with base_url "". I am asking because I want to understand what exactly problem you have.

No worries!

Due to spam blocking, I've had to munge all links. I'm adding a single space character to break it up.

I'm using supervise to manage tracd, here's my run script: !/bin/sh exec 2>&1 echo 'tracd starting.' exec sudo -H -u trac \

env \

TRAC_URI_ROOT=/ \ TRAC_BASE_URL=http \ PYTHON_EGG_CACHE=/trac/.egg_cache/ \ TRAC_ENV_INDEX_TEMPLATE=/trac/templates/top_index.html \ tracd \ --port 9123 \ --hostname \ --env-parent-dir=/trac/projects \ --base-path / \ --protocol http

Without the patch I included I get the following values for req.href() == '/itsalltext' req.abs_href() == 'http' returned base_url == 'http :tr'

The code in trac's don't make it clear to me what abs_href vs. href is supposed to do. On the plus side, it looks like you can actually use req.base_url directly.

That's what actually you should expect from those functions (or something similar): req.href(): /trac_test req.abs_href():

Result in your case looks very unclear. I have created fix for plugin if it is affect by such situation. Get newest plugin version from trac or

base_url is possible solution as well but I'm not sure about that yet because base_url might point to project. That will conflict with absolute_trust_root option of this plugin.

P.S. Thank you for "It's all text". I'm using very small number of FireFox add-ons and this one is I like very much.
