Does anyone know how to prevent silverstripe (2.4) outputting the protocol and host when linking to internal assets etc?

In the markup I am getting:

<script type="text/javascript" src=""></script>

and I want just:

<script type="text/javascript" src="/mysite/app/router.js?m=1340064453"></script>

The reason is that requests are going through a proxy so requests to https://localhost:8000/ are being proxied to so I don't want in the markup.

I've had a look around in Director and tried a few things including:


Any ideas?

Taking a look at the code it looks like this is hard coded to being absolute. In the Requirements_Backend::path_for_file() class you would need to replace the prefixed value. Patches welcome to make this more accessible.

Thanks for looking at it. I ended up modifying the path_for_file function in core/Requirements.php as follows:

// $prefix = Director::absoluteBaseURL();
$prefix = Director::baseURL();

I would rather not have modified the framework and I guess I was looking for a javascripty way of overriding the function but it doesn't seem like PHP works this way from what I can see.
