I was looking at the results of <% base_tag %> in SilverStripe 3.1.2. It is returning a address string plus index.php. That is, it is returning http://www.example.com/index.php. Was this intentional? I was expecting it to return http://www.example.com.

I see that the value is generated in get_base_tag() in SSViewer.php. I want to change this to return only the path, but, I am afraid to change this in the case that there is some reason that the index.php is actually being included in the return value.

Does anyone know why this value is being returned for the <base> tag?

If you have RewriteBase enabled and working then you shouldn't have that index.php there (unless you accessed the site through index.php in the URL). Could also try hard code the base URL

define('BASE_URL', ..);
