Subject: [Zope] question on URL styling
I am making a survey that has many very similar pages all in one
The page templates are called page-1.html, page-2.html, ... page-n.html.
I am using two submit buttons on each of the pages; one for 'Next'
and one for 'Previous' so that I catch changes to the form elements
in each direction. I use a python script as index_html, and hit it on
each submit (<form action=".">), and then redirect to the appropriate
page, whether that page is current_page++ or current_page--. I also
stuff all form variables into SESSION in the index_html python script.
What I am wondering though, is how to display the 'page' portion of
the address - right now it always just displays as
I would like it to display
The pages are all accessible directly by those names, but by always
going to index_html and returning the page via "return
container[next_page](context, request)" I never see this part in the
One possible work-around is to rename your python script, reformat
your urls and use traverse_subpath to access the page to be
displayed. eg. if you name your script 'displayPage', then you can
have a url like:
the displayPage script will be invoked and it can then access
REQUEST['traverse_subpath'] (which in the above case will contain
I find your "use case" a bit strange. Why would your users need to see
different URLs? Doesnt that pollute their browser's history list - and
do you want them clicking some Page-nn from history?
I like the idea of using a python script as index_html and using it as a
router. Instead of a redirect I use
return someZpt(context, request)
