I am very new to zope, and I am not an experienced lisp programmer - please accept the standard Newbie apologies. I am avoiding the use of DHTML, as this seems to be the approved policy. Most of my work has been using page templates, and internal and external python scripts.
I am trying to use Xemacs to develop and maintain a site that I created via the web interface. I have connected using the xemacs ftp link, and can edit. I have a couple of problems.
Firstly, my xemacs did not recognise my Script(Python) files as being
Python, and so it does not automatically switch to Python Major Mode.
I added the standard shebang "#! /usr/bin/python" to the start of the file which fixed this. However it would be nice if it were to recognise Zope's script preamble. Please could someone point me at a resource to help me configure my Xemacs for this.
Secondly, I found that after I had edited a script the web interface no longer showed the file as a python script, but as a DHTML file. When used, I just saw the script contents. Is this related to my adding the shebang? I have now removed it again, but it has not fixed the problem.
Is there any way I can switch them back (without using copy and paste)? How do I avoid this happening?
I am using Debian "Sarge" Linux, which provides Zope 2.7.
