Subject [jira] Created: (FOR-1013) absolute URLs in PDF
Date Mon, 18 Jun 2007 18:32:26 GMT
absolute URLs in PDF

                 Key: FOR-1013
             Project: Forrest
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: Plugin: output.pdf
    Affects Versions: 0.8
            Reporter: Patrick Ohly
            Priority: Minor

In case someone else has the same problem: my PDFs generated by Forrest
contained relative URLs for site-internal links which the PDF viewer
then couldn't open because it didn't know the start URL. Attached is a
patch for document-to-fo.xsl which turns relative URLs into absolute
ones in the PDF. It applies to 0.8 cleanly only after also applying the
PDF summary patch in
Otherwise be prepared for a few line offset warnings.

I enabled this in my skinconf.xml with:
      Normally all links inside a Forrest site are relative. This
      does not work well in PDFs which are typically viewed outside of
      the web site. Setting this option adds the given prefix to all
      relative URLs, both to the link as well as the optional, additional text.
