Description

Some URLs are absolute (i.e. http://myserver/foo) instead of relative to the base (i.e. /foo). This makes it tedious and difficult to run Redmine behind a proxy as the forwarder has to parse and alter the HTML on each page. Suggested solution is to use document-based URLs throughout for local pages. I believe the fix would be in render_menu in lib/redmine/menu_manager.rb.

Hi, it looks like this was incorrectly handled - the user is requesting that all urls be made local instead of absolute. Can you fix this so all links (/search, /projects, /login, /stylesheets, etc) be made local and not absolute?

If this still exists, then it needs re-targetting as 0.7.1 has already been released. Or open a separate bug targeted for 0.7.2 or 0.8.

The original request was about a few links with host name in the url. This is fixed.
Using Rails, links can not be relative (eg. ../logout).
