I noticed that all my in-site links now have my domain/theme name inserted after the domain. For example:


It used to be:


The new links still work, but they don't look very clean.

I don't know what is causing this or where to begin troubleshooting. I don't see anything in the Path module's patterns that would cause this. Should I be looking for a cause in .htaccess or settings.php (.htaccess hasn't been touched in months.)?

Could it be a module? Here's what currently enabled:

    Check your settings file and see if you're setting $base_path to something out of the ordinary.

  • @Darvanen I assume you mean $base_url? That was commented out. Enabling it with my URL fixed the issue. There is definitely an underlying issue with this site's setup, because I go back-and-forth with enabling and disabling $base_url whenever there's a strange problem that I can't find any solution to. Most of the time, changing $base_url (uncommenting if it's commented out, or commenting out if it's enabled) fixes the strange problems. Thanks for the help.

    Please provide an answer to your own question and then check it as the accepted answer. I think that is the proper way in StackExchange software/commmunities to indicate a question has been [SOLVED].

happend to me to - I commented out # RewriteBase /

in .htaccess and that did it for me - although i had to change all the links back to the original manually.

I haven't have time to troubleshoot why and what caused it.


Comment out # RewriteBase / in .htaccess file.

if you placed the drupal files in sub folder you need to add the RewriteBase /subfoldername in .htaccess file.


$base_url in settings.php was disabled; enabling it with my domain as the value seems to have resolved to problem.
