I've committed a fix for this issue into the next-stable branch on the
galaxy-central repository in change set revision 9212:92c8a55a6679, so the fix
will be included in the upcoming Galaxy release. This fix is currently running
on both the test and main Galaxy tool sheds as well.
You'll need to change your tool config file to use a new reserved word as
.. image:: $PATH_TO_IMAGES/count_modes.png
This reserved word will route correctly in the tool shed when you display the
tool inside of it's containing repository, and it will also route correctly
when the tool is loaded from it's repository after it has been installed into
All future tool configs that display images in the tool's help section will
need to use this approach for tools included in repositories in the tool shed.
Thanks very much for reporting this issue, and please let me know if you run
into any issues.
