Powered by Tripal block not displayed correctly on pages with existing path prefix #918

BUG/ERROR report

This is just a minor issue affecting the Powered by Tripal block, but it might cause hard to debug race conditions on pages that contain ajax calls and include this block as a footer (in particular when using extension code that uses $_SESSION variables).

System information

  • Tripal Version: 7.x-2.x I just noticed that this only affects 2.x!
  • Drupal Version: not relevant
  • PostgreSQL Version: not relevant
  • PHP Version: 7.1

Issue description

The Tripal logo is not displayed correctly on pages that include an existing path prefix in their URLS (e.g. /search)

The following line should be changed to yield the absolute image path (/sites/all/modules/...), not the relative one:

'#markup' => '<a href=""><img border="0" src="' . drupal_get_path('module', 'tripal') . '/theme/images/' . $image . '"></a>',

'#markup' => '<a href=""><img border="0" src="/' . drupal_get_path('module', 'tripal') . '/theme/images/' . $image . '"></a>',

Steps to reproduce

The logo is not displayed, but instead a web server thread will be loading until request timeout because of the incorrect image request URL sent to site search: /search/sites/all/modules/tripal/tripal_core/theme/images/powered_by_tripal_small.png

Error messages and screenshots

Screenshots from before and after changing to absolute path, displaying the block from: /search/gene

Sorry, this is only in 2.x not 3.x. In 3, $base_path is used which does give the correct path.
