I am building a drupal 7 site on my localhost with ckeditor (7.x-1.13), HTML Purifier (7.x-1.0).
I realized that when my ip changes on the network, the links to the images I upload from ckeditor are broken. As I checked the html source, I saw that they are absolute urls and are using the previous ip as a part of them. Now that the ip is different, they are broken.
I need to develop the site and enter most of the content on localhost and if I cannot solve this problem, things will get complicated when I move the site to the server.
After reading a related question (D7 - Losing images when moving site location; placeholders point to old absolute path rather than relative path) I tried installing pathologic (7.x-2.11) module, checking the settings for text formats, clearing the cache with no result.
Is there a way to make ckeditor to use relative paths for images? Would it have any disadvantages?
