in reply to Mojo::URL returns incorrect absolute path


I looked at your problem and found the following:

You grab the URL In the result of that html document there is a href with href="page/rss". If you would build the resulting URL manually you would take the and add the relative url page/rss to it. This would result in This is what you get from Mojolicious.

Now the big "BUT":

In the resulting html document of there is a html tag <base href="" /> stating that every relative URL should be based on that base URL. This means that your href="page/rss" is added to <base href="" /> resulting in <base href="" />, which is what you want.

The question remains. Should Mojolicious respect any base-tag on its own or are you responsible to extract a base tag and add it to your absolute-url-generating-code?

As I took the time to look at your problem I would like to ask you to file a question to the mojolicious maintainers if this behaviour is intentional.

Best regards

    Thanks for the the explanation to the problem.

    I understand what your are saying. I was just expecting the behavior for Mojolicious to be the same as browser behavior.
