Subject Re: Accessing uri-prefix from within sub-sitemaps?
Date Mon, 04 Nov 2002 20:40:32 GMT
Thanks for the reply Joerg,

I looked into your suggestion, but I don't quite see how to do it. For  
a project in development the URI will be something like:

and for a deployed project the URI will just be

but after that the URI could contain any path, so I feel like checking  
if the URI starts with "/projects/*/" would be a hack and could cause  
problems if by chance the site contained a top level projects folder.  
I'm already passing either "projects/proj1" or "" (an empty string) to  
the stylesheet. I would just like to find a way to pass it to the  
sub-sitemap, from the main sitemap.

Anyway, this problem isn't that big of a deal, just a cleanliness issue  
really. I'm creating the development system so that there's a "deploy"  
button which will upload the site to the server, (like GoLive or  
Dreamweaver). Right now there's three things I need to do to any  
project folder, add the WEB-INF director, fix the sitemap to take away  
the "base" parameter, and add a correct cocoon.xconf file. I'm just  
looking to simplify the process. If anyone can help me on the  
cocoon.xconf problems I'm having I'd very much appreciate it. (I think  
it could be a bug see )


ps. oh i made a mistake in my sitemap code below, the parameter line  
should be:

<map:parameter name="base" value="/projects/proj1"/>
