Subject Re: Generate html page from url in some file
Date Thu, 10 Apr 2003 13:40:27 GMT
Thanks for answering.

No, I don't want to change the links on the page.
Simply saying, I just want to take one link, fetch its url,
and use it in the pipeline, i.e. generate it, apply some xsl stylesheet and
serialize. So if cocoon pipeline is called with ,
what I actually want to produce is the result of pipeline whose
generator src will be - which is actually
written in .

Hope this time I explained myself better and hope that someone
will be able to help me.
This may be confusing, so I will be glad to present more specific example.

Thank you very much for help.

I think I know what you mean, but correct me if I'm wrong.

You want to be able to make all the links in a remote web page point back to
your web app to a specific cocoon

So, if a remote page at contains
<a href="">link 1</a>

you can change it so that it actually look like
<a href="">link

Let me know if this is what you mean as I may have a solution.
