Hi Dimitri,

The footer contains the variable "$navpath", but that contains some variables too, which are not expanded correctly.

In my case "$navpath" gets expanded to:

  • search.c
  • Seems there need to be done some variable expansion before or afterwards.

    Custom footer:

    • $generatedby doxygen $doxygenversion

    $generatedby &# 160; doxygen $doxygenversion <<

    Thanks for any correction.

    I wasn't able to reproduce this. Can you please attach a self-contained example (source+Doxyfile+footer+output in a tar or zip) that allows me to reproduce the problem?

    example to duplicate the problem

    Hi Dimitri,

    attached is an stripped down version to duplicate the issue.

    BTW, I am running doxygen 64-bit on Windows 7 x64 Edition.

    Thanks, I can now reproduce the issue as well.
    The problem was the potential ambiguity of using $relpath$search, which could mean
    $relpath$ search or
    $relpath $search.
    I'll use $relpath^ in the next release.
