Maybe we should continue this discussion on the CherryPy list ...
All I was saying is that I didn't want to give people the impression
that this custom header was always needed ... It's only needed if you
want to locate your app not at the root ... And even then, there are
also other alternatives that don't require a custom header. For
instance, you can put the path of your application in a config file and
use BaseUrlFilter to tell CherryPy where to locate the app.
Then you should just relative URLs, or use cpg.request.base for absolute
URLs (including redirects).
