Extensions' 'config/' and 'db/' admin links don't work when SITE_ROOT isn't '/'
Review Request #3874 — Created Feb. 16, 2013 and submitted
Fix admin-urls for extensions when SITE_ROOT != '/' In the case of custom SITE_ROOTs, the calculation of the extensions' 'db/' and 'config/' seem to use the reverse function for extension_list method and then append it to the DynamicUrlResolvers' add_patterns method. This adds an additional SITE_ROOT pattern as reverse(extension_list) itself returns the path with the SITE_ROOT. So, instead of the url for SITE_ROOT='/reviews/' being reviews/admin/extensions/rbcustomreports.extension.CustomReportsExtension/config/ it turns out to be reviews/reviews/admin/extensions/rbcustomreports.extension.CustomReportsExtension/config/ Fixed this by lstrip-ing the SITE_ROOT after getting a reverse function so that dynamic url resolver adds it properly. This should work for SITE_ROOT='/' or custom SITE_ROOTs.
Tested with SITE_ROOT='/' and SITE_ROOT='/reviews/', installed an extension and testing the "Configure" link.
Looks good to me.
