Error in zmi when an object is named 'URL' or 'URL1'

Bug #142874 reported by Eric Brun on 2004-02-04
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
Zope 2

Bug Description

When I create a object (like Folder or DTMLMethod or ...) with name 'URL' or 'URL1' .... , I can't access to the content of my parent folder which contain this new folder :

Zope Error
Zope has encountered an error while publishing this resource.

Error Type: AttributeError
Error Value: __getslice__

I think its a conflic namespace between REQUEST object and Folder Object in the manage_main methed (OFS/dtml/main.dtml).
Note I try it on : no problem to create but then I can't copy/paste anything in my folder : the same error happened.
In the copy / paste the problem is the same because when REQUEST is not None in manage_copyObjects and manage_cutObjects
the returned method is self.manage_main(self, REQUEST).

It by no means addresses the issue in its entirety, but it gives you the general idea of what needs to be done over the entire source tree. DTML is a painful tool to use correctly, and I won't be submitting a more complete patch as I don't have the time or desire to do so.

Yes the code could be made more susinct and easy to read with appropriate use of <dtml-with> and/or <dtml-let> statements.

Otherwise it seems fine. The related 545 issue is closed.

I have applied the patch:

Zope 2.12 branch:

Zope trunk:

As noted in the comments there may be other places where this failure still occurs, but those should be dealt with using separate Launchpad issues that describe exactly what's failing where.
