#81 closed defect (duplicate)

Image links getting mangled?

Reported by: dhscompguy Owned by: gogo
Priority: low Milestone: Version 1.0
Component: Xinha Core Version: trunk
Severity: minor Keywords: broken, image, link


I'm inserting this image --

<img hspace="0" src="http://localhost/ibcms/serve.php/7/" align="baseline" border="0" />

When I switch back and forth from HTML mode to WYSIWYG mode, the link is changed to


and sometimes even


The same also happens to other links, but I'm noticing it mostly happens with images.

File: htmlarea.js
Line: 4046

if (HTMLArea.is_ie && (name == "href" || name == "src")) {
    value = editor.stripBaseURL(value);

Why strip the BaseURL?

I commented this line out and my problem disappeared in IE (not sure about Firefox yet).

Seems to work fine in my version of Firefox too.

Any idea what this line is there for?

You could overwrite the editor.stripBaseURL function to just return value, this can be done from the file calling the xinha editor, this way you wouldn't need to fix the xinha code in consecutive releases.

If you create a relative link in IE, it will make it absolute by inserting the host name. Thus we have to strip out the hostname.

That said, URL stripping probably needs looking at, cleaning up, and commenting as to the specific behaviours of Gecko and IE - as each I believe has certain strange behaviour when it comes to relative and server-root-absolute URls.
