Subject: [Zope] question on URL styling

I am making a survey that has many very similar pages all in one directory.
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,, etc.

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 URL.

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 'page-1.html').



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)
