#1199 closed Bug (fixed)

web interface index.html fails to load css/javascript

Reported by: journey4712 Owned by: Gimp
Priority: Normal Milestone: 1.33
Component: Web Client Version: 1.32
Severity: Normal Keywords:


Device: Popcorn A-100 Firmware: 00-17-080730-15-POP-402

Cross compiled transmission 1.32 for mipsel-linux-uclibc. After install when loading http://remotedevice:9091/transmission/web/ from my PC the page fails to load all javascript/css

Firebug in firefox reports that they all returned 404 errors

As a hack, i was able to change all css/js links from ./ to /transmission/web/ in index.html and transmission webui now works properly.

To follow up on this, the behavior can be reproduced with:


The proper behavior is shown with


By default if you go to http://remotedevice:9091/ you get redirected to the first instance(broken) as oposed to the second(works)

Retried with todays svn, the http://remotedevice:9091/ now redirects with the trailing slash, so in general this works. Manualy going to the page without a trailing slash still doesn't work. On IRC was mentioned that safari and FF 3.0.1 on mac add a trailing slash if you dont provide it. Tested FF and FF 3.0.1 on windows XP SP2, FF 3.0.1 and Konquror 4.0.3 on linux(ubuntu hardy) all failed to add a trailing slash.

Adding the tag <base href="http://remotedevice:9091/transmission/web/" /> to the head of index.html is another method of resolving this problem. Unfortunatly this cannot be relative, it must be full including the hostname and port. A possible solution is the use a bit of client javascript to write the proper base tag.

The following javascript in index.html, inside <head> produces proper behavior. Not sure how quality it is of a fix though.

<script type="text/javascript">document.write('<base href="http://' + + '/transmission/web/" />');</script>

FF and Opera 9.51 on gentoo both add a trailing slash when I try it. ( Transmission latest SVN )
