#8153 closed defect (fixed)

Website Broke

Reported by: anonymous Owned by: Remy Blank
Priority: highest Milestone: 0.11.4
Component: web frontend Version: 0.11-stable
Severity: normal Keywords:
Cc: Branch:
Release Notes:
API Changes:


  1. Visit http://trac.edgewall.org/
  2. Click on "New Ticket"

Here I get a DNS error because the URL it tries to go to is


which does not resolve on my system. To file this bug report I had to manually edit my address bar's URL to append "wiki/NewTicket" to the protocol/hostname "http://trac.edgewall.org/".

It looks to me like a simple broken URL.

Commentary: This is the website for Trac and the button to file a new bug report is broken? WTF? LAME! YOU SUCK!

I'll forgive you but only if you improve Trac's GUI to be as pretty as Redmine's.

While I don't like your tone, you do have a valid point: the [mainnav] section of TracIni seems to be broken. I wonder if this is related to [7930]?

In the future, please formulate your bug reports in a more neutral tone. Thanks.

It was indeed [7930], and it also broke redirection of URLs with trailing slashes (e.g. /newticket/ to /newticket, it currently redirects to //newticket instead).

Patch coming up shortly.

The patch above fixes both the mainnav and redirect issue.

The cause is that [7930] changed the behavior of href objects when called with no argument:

href() == href('/') == ''   ->   href() == href('/') == '/'

I'd say this regression is serious enough to be a release blocker, so I suggest we apply the patch and make a second release candidate.

Obviously you have found the problem, but here (Trac 0.11.4rc1, tracd, WinXP) "new Ticket" works without any problems.

comment:5 by Remy Blank, 10 years ago

The default navigation items work. But if you define a custom link for a mainnav item in trac.ini, like so:

newticket.href = /wiki/NewTicket

as is done here on t.e.o, the link is broken.
