patch for 5154 (2.60 KB, patch)

Description Brett Bieber 2007-10-08 19:10:54 UTC
There are three references to the docs/help.html file within the error_messages.cfg - which are not absolutely addressed (begin with http://).

When output using the soap12 format, the links are relative without context. See message from Karim for more info

I'll submit a patch.
