Please send all Zope related questions to a Zope related mailing list and not to me privately.
Usually, I do not answer questions sent to me privately! I added "email@example.com".

Actually, the mount-point syntax is much more complex than the form you use above. Among others, it supports mount-point mount-path:storage-path "mount-path" describes how you reach the mount point in the mounting application and "storage-path" how you find the mounted object from the storage root. An example would be: mount-point /F1/F2/XXX:/S1/XXX Note that the last component in both paths *MUST* be identical (otherwise, Zope's url construction no longer works with URL traversal). Usually, the "storage-path" will look like "/XXX" (where "XXX" is some id (without '/')). If "storage-path" is not given, it defaults to "mount-path" (this explains why you do not see anything in your storage). To summarize: * always explicitely give a storage path * use a storage path of the form "/<id>" * then you can mount the storage at different places *BUT* you must never mount with a different id (the mount point must have the same id as that of the mounted object). -- Dieter _______________________________________________ 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 )
