I am having a problem with malformed links in the email message received from actionnotify in release 4.2. I don't see these problems on my 4.1 version of TWiki. The URL links in the email message look like http://www.wikioraapps.comhttp://www.wikioraapps.com/twiki420/bin/view.pl/Main/.... where the initial http://www.wikioraapps.com is doubled up.

This happens on the target icon link to the action, the assigned to, and the edit link. The path to the actual target.gif in TWikiDocGraphics is not affected.

Further note: I don't think it is a configure issue because mailnotify is working great!

Thanks Enrique for your prompt reply. However, I don't think the WYSIWYG editor is the problem. I am an old school kind of guy and WYSIWYG has never been used on these topics preference topics. The timestamps on the files in question indicate they are from the original build for 4.2. I will leave the question as asked for now.

I also had/have this problem. I am temporarily getting around it by commenting out a few lines in lib\TWiki\Plugins\ActionTrackerPlugin\ActionNotify.pm, about line 380 as follows:

    $text =~ s/]>/[IMG]/goi;  # remove all images
    # add the url host to any in-twiki urls that lack it
    # These aren't required, and in fact break, the windows install
    #my $sup = TWiki::Func::getScriptUrlPath();
    #$sup =~ s#/$##;
    #my $sun = TWiki::Func::getUrlHost() . $sup;
    #$text =~ s#href=\"$sup/#href=\"$sun/#ogi;
    #$text =~ s/<\/?nop( \/)?>//goi;

The lines are in fact required, as they rewrite relative urls to absolute. TWikibug:Item5607 was the relevant report for this, BTW, and was fixed recently. Update your version from ActionTrackerPlugin.

OK. Thanks very much for the insight and help.
