#821 closed New Feature (invalid)

use references, not URLs

Description (last modified by Martin Kou)

When I insert a link or image with the 'Browse Server' option, FCKeditor inserts a URL relative to the server root. For instance, if my site is rooted at http://mysite/path/to/plone, and I insert a link to http://mysite/path/to/plone/image.png into a document, the generated tag will be

<img src="/path/to/plone/image.png" />

This is bad for two reasons:

  1. should the plone site ever move, then *all* internal

links will become invalid.

  1. should image.png ever move or be renamed, then all

links refering to it will become invalid.

As of late, Plone uses Archetypes for its content types. Archetypes gives every object a unique ID, and a catalog to search these IDs quickly. A better idea would be to insert a link to the reference ID and let it be resolved at runtime. Please check the Kupu editor for an example of how this works.

If you need help with the implementation of this important feature, please let me know!

madduck is never sleeping ;-)

Thank you for your proposition.

I need to control url constructions in some cases, it's important.

For object renaming wich is a big problem, it's a really good idea using Archetypes unique IDs for Plone2.1 content types.

I don't have the time to work with a CVS, but for this question, you can send your solutions here (patches section)

Best regards
