#7885 closed defect (worksforme)

links to changesets/tickets in timeline do not use base_url from trac.ini

Internal Changes:


base_url in trac.ini is set to https://foo.com/trac/myproj

a reverse proxy (pound) publishes trac timeline as https://foo.com/trac/myproj/timeline

ssl is terminated at the reverse proxy and requests are forwarded to internal server at

now, when clicking on a changeset or ticket link in the timeline, the link will point to http://foo.com/trac/myproj/… instead of to https://foo.com/trac/myproj/

links in non-timeline pages are OK and do use the correct https baseurl

forgot: Ubuntu Linux 7.04 Python 2.5

maybe also useful: with trac 0.10.x and the same reverse proxy, the problem did not occur

comment:3 by anonymous, 14 years ago

the problem seems to go away when the following changes are applied:

file: user/lib/python2.5/site-packages/Trac-011.2-py2.5.egg/trac/timeline/web_ui.py

line 182: rss_context = Context.from_request(req, absurls=False)

line 188: html_context = Context.from_request(req, absurls=False)

seems to be a workable solution, but have to say I am not familiar enough with the source to judge if this is the best way to fix though…

(offtopic: I absolutely love trac - great product!)

The fix on line 188 has been committed in [7754]. But I'm not sure if the one on line 182 is correct. Christian?

Replying to rblank:

Line 182 looks good to me. For RSS feeds we neeed absolute URLs as they need to work outside server context. I've tested both and they work fine now.

comment:6 by Christian Boos, 14 years ago

Yes, 188 was just a copy/paste from 182 and I forgot to clear the absurls=True parameter which is needed for RSS feeds, so r7754 corrects it to:

  • line 182, rss_contextabsurls=True
  • line 188, html_contextabsurls=False, or no parameter, as it's the default

Ok, I guess it's a worksforme, then.
