Go to Settings --> Options --> System --> Documentation Paths
If instead of http://docs.qgis.org/2.14/en/docs/user_manual, you write http://docs.qgis.org/2.14/en/docs/user_manual/ (note the slash at the end), the hyperlink created when hitting the help button is like http://docs.qgis.org/2.14/en/docs/user_manual//introduction/qgis_configuration.html#options which is a kind of plain text of the real page (no images rendered e.g.)

strip trailing slash from the help path if necessary (fix #16156)


#1 Updated by Alexander Bruy over 6 years ago

IMHO this should be fixed also on the server-side

#2 Updated by Harrissou Santanna over 6 years ago

Do you mean I should also open an issue report in the Doc repo?

#3 Updated by Alexander Bruy over 6 years ago

If this is a correct place for such issues, yes. User may type slash twice by mistake, so better is this is handled not only when help opened automatically from QGIS, but also when user opens it manually.
