Well, these things should be done together. What is needed is a complete set of functions for getting the objects path, URL sitename and root, both with and without SiteRoot/VHM. And the virtual functions should work by asking the SiteRoot/VHM for the information, instead of as today getting the information from the request, since you may want to find out the virtual path of objects in another part of the site that has another virtual root than the object you are calling from does. For example, like this: getPhysicalPath() would return ('', 'site', 'folder', 'foo', 'bar') getPhysicalURL() would return '/site/folder/foo/bar/' <Note the ending slash> getPhysicalHost() would return 'http://real.domain.com' <Note the absence of an ending slash> getPhysicalRootObj() Returns the object that is your root, in this case the root. getVirtualPath() would return ('', 'folder', 'foo', 'bar') getVirtualURL() would return '/folder/foo/bar/' <Note the ending slash> getVirtualHost() would return 'http://virtual.domain.com' <Note the absence of an ending slash> getVirtualRootObj() Returns the object that is your root, in this case the object called /site. _______________________________________________ Zope-Dev maillist - [EMAIL PROTECTED] http://lists.zope.org/mailman/listinfo/zope-dev ** No cross posts or HTML encoding! ** (Related lists - http://lists.zope.org/mailman/listinfo/zope-announce http://lists.zope.org/mailman/listinfo/zope )
