Restart Zope. Python will pick up the changes. Also, if you're modifying security code, make sure you set security-policy-implementation to Python in zope.conf, otherwise you're using the C one, and no matter what changes you make to the Python scripts you won't see any changes. > I suspect that I have a fundamental misunderstanding > of how Zope uses code in the Products directory. > > Is Zope storing all the compiled byte code in the > data.fs file?

Repeat until the problem is fixed. yoursite/manage will get you to the control panel. If he's managed to override /manage then you have problems... And the real problem: > TypeError: can only concatenate tuple (not "list") to > tuple Like it says, you're supplying a list, you want a tuple. It looks like you need to update PluginIndexes, I don't know where they come from. -- Phillip Hutchings http://www.sitharus.com/ [EMAIL PROTECTED] / [EMAIL PROTECTED] _______________________________________________ Zope maillist - Zope@zope.org http://mail.zope.org/mailman/listinfo/zope ** No cross posts or HTML encoding! ** (Related lists - http://mail.zope.org/mailman/listinfo/zope-announce http://mail.zope.org/mailman/listinfo/zope-dev )
