Wai,

I surmise you are right. Could you provide a patch?

Best regards,

> In reference to the posting, http://ofbiz.135035.n4.nabble.com/Proposal-to-remove-catalog-s-quot-Template-Path-Prefix-quot-field-from-user-interface-td4633296.html
> http://demo-trunk.ofbiz.apache.org/catalog/control/EditProdCatalog?prodCatalogId=DemoCatalog
> It seems that the code blindly prepends the "Template Path Prefix" value to the category's
"Detail Screen" field resulting in a file path format that would cause an exception.
> Hence, if a catalog's "Template Path Prefix" is "zzz" and a category's "Detail Screen"
is "somedetailscreen", the resulting screen that ofbiz looks for is "/zzzsomedetailscreen".
 Which ofbiz would not be able to locate based on the format of the screen location.  Hence,
cause an exception.
> If a catalog's "Template Path Prefix" is "zzz" and a category's "Detail Screen" is "component://ecommerce/widget/CatalogScreens.xml#somedetailscreen",
the resulting screen that ofbiz looks for is "/zzzcomponent://ecommerce/widget/CatalogScreens.xml#somedetailscreen".
 Which ofbiz would not be able to located due to the improper format. Hence cause an exception.
> Since this code never worked since 2006 when it was first placed into the svn repository.
 I don't think anyone has made use of it since.
> Regarding a catalog's "Content Path Prefix" field, it also exhibits the same flaw. That
of blindly prepending this field.  This field is generally used to specify the product images
to be shown in the ecommerce component.
> When this field is empty, the generated image url in ecommerce is shown below (note that
it is using "image" webapp context):
> /images/products/ENCHILADAS/small.png
> If you were to specify "/zzz" for "Content Path Prefix", the resulting url for the generated
image tag is shown below (note that it is using "zzz" webapp context):
> /zzz/images/products/ENCHILADAS/small.png
> As you can see.  "Content Path Prefix" specifies a "zzz" webapp context with a subdirectory
"image".  I doubt this was the intent of the field.  The question is, where exactly are you
supposed to place this field value? 
> I propose to remove the catalog's "Template Path Prefix" field from the catalog's user
interface and assoc code to reduce the confusion.
