Item2525: TablePlugin produces bad links for sorting when using "short" URLs

Priority: Normal
Current State: Closed

Applies To: Extension
Component: TablePlugin

Sorting links for rendered table for certain URLs is wrong.

Specifically, I use:

The sort link is then:;table=1;up=0#sorted_table

A solution: Plugins/TablePlugin/ line 577:

$url = $cgi->url . $cgi->path_info() . '?' . $plist;

should be:

$url = $cgi->url(-path_info=>1) . '?' . $plist;

(It would appear that url and path_info could overlap in this case.)

Item2380 looks like it might be related to this (same symptom, web/topic names doubled up).

(I wonder if your fix would work in that case also, instead of the hack - will try it out).

Anybody aware if something changed recently with cgi/query?

I'm having troubles reproducing this locally :-/

Jade, could you report the exact versions of the GGI libraries you use? (They are listed in configure under CGI setup).

Do you still have the problem if you use TWiki:Plugins.CpanContrib? (The cpan modules shipped with this takes precedence over locally installed modules).

(I'm re-prioritizing this as Normal, it is not a release blocker).

Unable to reproduce this in current SVN code, closing item.

I'm re-opening this bug report since I think the reporter left out one crucial bit of information: they were using TWiki:Codev.ShorterURLs (as evidenced by the very first link they list above). I suspect this is the same problem as described in TWiki:Support.TablePluginAndShorterUrlsConflict.

I'm observing the exact same problem on a site that uses url rewriting and would be glad to help find a solution.

TablePlugin has seen a lot of refactoring lately, would be good to have a confirmation that this issue still exists in the latest SVN revision.

I am seeing this on Wiki-4.1.2, Sat, 03 Mar 2007, build 13046 I fixed this on line 924 of TablePlugin/
handler() $url = $cgi->url . $cgi->path_info() . '?' . $plist; to $url = $cgi->url . '?' . $plist;

This is using the shorter url stuff as well as apache redirects to shorten further

-- TWiki:Main.AntonPiatek - 24 Jan 2008

Just upgraded to 4.2 and had to fix it as well - line 1695

-- TWiki:Main.AntonPiatek - 11 Feb 2008

I don't see any problem with short urls and table sort. I am using
# Shorter URLs
ScriptAlias /bin "/var/www/html/twiki/bin"
Alias /pub "/var/www/html/twiki/pub"
Alias / "/var/www/html/twiki/bin/view/"

Is this problem related to RewriteEngine?

-- TWiki:Main.ArthurClemens - 11 Feb 2008

I'm seeing this problem on our servers: We use ISA Server to "reroute" the external query to an internal server. The end result is that the table headers will show the internal IP even if TWiki was accessed from the external IP. I have the following fix, with the corresponding update of the unit tests:
--- a/twikiplugins/TablePlugin/lib/TWiki/Plugins/TablePlugin/
+++ b/twikiplugins/TablePlugin/lib/TWiki/Plugins/TablePlugin/

I'll experiment with the fix mentioned in Item5408. If nobody complains, I'll commit one of those fixes into 4.2.1 and trunk tonight.

-- TWiki:Main.RafaelAlvarez - 05 Aug 2008

I committed a change to this code recently. See Item5880. I can't test now if my change also fixes this issue and Item5408.

-- TWiki:Main.GilmarSantosJr - 05 Aug 2008

I'll test it tonight

-- TWiki:Main.RafaelAlvarez - 05 Aug 2008

Gilmar, sadly the changes to Item5880 didn't fix what I reported. Neither did the fix for Item5408.

I'm going to commit my change (modified to fit the current code), it should not affect Item5880.

-- TWiki:Main.RafaelAlvarez - 08 Aug 2008

Actually, my original change was wrong.

I just commited my fix (it worked for my setup). This need test by someone with someone that uses TWiki:Codev.ShorterURLs

-- TWiki:Main.RafaelAlvarez - 08 Aug 2008

Thanks for the fix, Rafael!

Since trunk is still broken, I'm reopening this (TWiki::Request::url doesn't support -absolute neither -rewrite).

-- TWiki:Main.GilmarSantosJr - 08 Aug 2008

I added support for -absolute to TWiki::Request::url() and merged the early fix to trunk.

-- TWiki:Main.GilmarSantosJr - 11 Aug 2008

I reopened this to update unit tests. Now it's (finally!) done. smile
