"See FAQ in Frontend" button missing "/" in address.

Post by WEB_DEV » Fri May 08, 2015 5:28 pm

My apologies if either this has been answered (saw some stuff in German, no clue if it is related...) or maybe as well this is not a bug in phpMyFAQ, rather maybe the update process did not work properly (only updated by one revision number)

At any rate, I am experiencing an issue from the "edit record" and if there is a different name for your initial FAQ, it is messed up too.

Very simple issue, I am for some reason having difficulties finding what generates that address each time to fix it readily. Let it be known when you select "See FAQ in Frontend" the address is missing its forward slash before "index" portion of the URL. Since I am working in a folder of a much larger web system, it sends me off to the website by mistake.

So clicking that button yields something like this:

Code: Select all

Should read:

Code: Select all

http://www.mycoolsite.com/mycoolsitefaqs    "/"      index.php?action=artikel&cat=8&id=7&artlang=en
In this case, to the left of the forward slash is just the URL to the folder, but the address generated needs a "/" between the folder and the generated - "index.php?action=artikel&cat=8&id=7&artlang=en"

I do not think this has anything to do with the other server side stuff running, as this only showed up after phpMyFAQ made a "successful update" to the current version v2.8.22 running on a dedicated system that has not had any updates between versions of phpMyFAQ as an update.

Any help appreciated - this has to be s simple edit, I just cannot for some reason find the script that generates that for "btn btn-info" for that spot.

I do think it is a bug as this only appeared after the update.

add the trailing slash in the main configuration of your FAQ at
URL of your FAQ (e.g.: http://www.example.org/faq/)
and it'll work
