Missing headers and footers in reports?

on 8/22/14, 4:31 AM 4,958 views

Hi All

I've seen this problem pop up on 2 occasions now. I am running odoo8rc1 from github and just updated to the latest commit today. When I change odoo default port from anything other than 8069 I get no hearders and footers on reports, discribed here:


Today I did a fresh install of Ubuntu 14.04 and odoo (through github). I imported my database and all was fine, website was working and seemed intact. I updated wkhtmltopdf (https://www.odoo.com/forum/help-1/question/wkhtmltopdf-on-v8-not-found-48208) and the wkhtmlpf upgrade warning went away.

Everything is up and running on a new server with new IP. When I print an invoice it takes VERY long and the pdf is missing the header and footer. Odoo is running on port 8069 and changing the alias domain under "General settings" to the new server IP seems to have no effect. Please could someone advise on what I could check and what I am missing. 





Changing the 'alias domain' under 'General settings' is related to the email functionality and normally has no relation with the problem that you report. On the fresh install, you have the same problem even with the default port?

Hi George yes, even on the default port the problem persists on the new server.

Just to update this, I found the answer to the question here : https://github.com/odoo/odoo/issues/1105

It was as simple as changing the sysem parameter web.base.url to the correct ip and port after the database import.

create report.url in system parameters with This solved my problem
