Summary06844: Setting 'baseurl' in config.php does not function as documented
DescriptionAs suggested at, I have added the code

'request' => array(
            'baseUrl' => '',

to my config.php file.

After adding this file, attempting to access the main LimeSurvey admin screen results in a text-only version.

In this text-only version, surveys are still being listed by the IP address of my server, rather than the baseUrl specified in the config.php file.

If I modify the baseUrl string to read ''

(where "pineapple" is the root dir of my test LimeSurvey install) then site templates, images and CSS all load properly, however the emailed URLs and the URL listed in the survey title screen are still listed by IP address.
Additional InformationMy organisation will contribute to the project if this problem is satisfactorily resolved. Would £50 (~E65) be an appropriate amount?
TagsNo tags attached.

To force createabsoluteurl.

But, maybe have to use a $config['rooturl'] to set that.
