Generate documentation that uses a tagfile.

If layout is:



and the doxyfile in src/proj1 includes:

TAGFILES = ../doc/proj2/proj2.tag=../../../../proj2/html


the proj1 documentation for classes contains proper links to proj2/html files, but the links in the included source files include an additional ../../ prepended to the relative path specified in the doxyfile's TAGFILES field.

I guess you have CREATE_SUBDIRS enabled, in which case doxygen will add the ../.. where needed and you should not do this in the TAGFILES line. If you found a case where the result is not correct, then please attach a self-contained example (source + config file in a zip or tar) that allows me to reproduce the problem.

As a workaround: does it help to disable CREATE_SUBDIRS and use
TAGFILES = ../doc/proj2/proj2.tag=../../proj2/html

Created attachment 162350
Example of the tagfile path differences between class and file documentation

In the attached example, the tagfile reference in the proj1 doxyfile is:

TAGFILES = ../doc/proj2/proj2.tag=../../proj2/html/

If you go to the generated CProj1 class documentation, the brief description has a broken link to the CProj2 class document.

If you go to the documentation for proj1.hpp, the link to the CProj2 class document is fine.

Since the class documentation is most important, I've been using:

TAGFILES = ../doc/proj2/proj2.tag=../../../../proj2/html/

This fixes the links in the class documentation but leaves the links broken in the file docs.

This is using doxygen on Windows.

Confirmed. Should be fixed in the next subversion update.

This bug was previously marked ASSIGNED, which means it should be fixed in
doxygen version 1.7.0. Please verify if this is indeed the case. Reopen the
bug if you think it is not fixed and please include any additional information
that you think can be relevant.
