Support for default tool and redirect

Bug #333890 reported by Paul Everitt on 2009-02-24
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone

Bug Description

Moderators can select a tool to be the default tool of a community.

KARL3 Behavior

We're just going to do a redirect. The /community/africa will go to Overview.

KARL2 Behavior

This is how it works in KARL2. A URL such as:


...goes to the default tool. If the default tool is Overview, then this "default" URL returns the same results as clicking on the Overview tab, which leads to the view.html URL.

Stated differently, for a new community, both of these return the same results:


The hard part: this works without a redirect. That is, the first URL doesn't redirect you to the second.

If you edit the community and choose Blog as the default tool, then these two URLs return the same result:


Again, this works without a redirect.

This might be hard to do in KARL3, where the default view is wired up in ZCML, not associated at runtime.

Assigning to Chris for input. We don't have to address this now, I put it in M4.

Why would anyone care if it redirected or not?
