Subject Re: Sitemap and Action
Date Tue, 14 Aug 2001 09:50:57 GMT

Thanks for sharing your solution. C2 is in its infancy, in terms of user 
base, so the rate of new users is high. Use cases are always helpfull.

Yes, actions are one possible way to do it. They are definitely the 
correct way if you think of CMS in terms of an adapting sitemap.

One other, equally valid solution would be to think of it in terms of a 
configurable generator. In other words, a generator that multiplexes a 
set of datasources, and selects the correct one for each request.
