I made change in setting.php for base url

$base_url = 'http://www.example.com/drupal

Pattern for this content type paths are


pathauto works ok, in the database path is exactly as pattern.

Problem starts when I want to print Content:path in view I am getting


I have a problem with path field because I want to rewrite result for logo field using

<a href="/company/[nid][path]">[field_company_logo]</a>

And link is http://www.example.com/company/[nid]/drupal/[node:title] instead of http://www.example.com/drupal/company/[nid]/[node:title]

Changing the $base_url variable by no means makes drupal look through every bit of text in the system checking for href's. So, if you put in

 <a href="/company/.....

it is going to use it exactly as is because it has no idea to do anything else. It will, however, be more than glad to put it in front of a path if you use some of its built in functions, for example:

 <?php print l('Foo Bar Baz', 'company/foo/bar/baz'); ?>

will create a link to /company/foo/bar/baz if $base_url is not set, or if it is set to drupal, to /drupal/company/foo/bar/baz.

So, to your problem. Have you tried Views' Output as a link instead of creating the <a> ... </a> code yourself in Rewrite the output of this field? That should put that $base_url in there automagically if in the Link path: you enter company/[nid][path] (or whatever tokens you need as you use several different ones in your question).

  • The things are better when I choose 'Output as a link'. The '$base_url' is now ok, but path has again part of '$base_url' as prefix and looks /drupal/[path] And the problem still exist, if I enter 'Link path: company/[nid][path]' now I am getting www.example.com/drupal/company/314/drupal/some-title

  • I'd then look into your path alias settings to see if you have inadvertently put $base_url in there.

  • I take a look at url aliases and as pattern I wrote '[node:title]' nothing more

I resolved this using Global:php field and in output code I wrote drupal function to find alias

<?php echo drupal_lookup_path('alias',"node/".$row->nid); ?>

Then as Jimajamma said in views I choose Output as a link and in Link path: i wrote company/[nid]/[php] and everything works.
