Yep, I managed to get that far shortly after posting on Friday.
However, my custom folder_view action was still being hidden, and the
index_html for "/cmfsite" was being acquired by "/cmfsite/foo", which
was rather jarring. I "fixed" it by renaming /cmfsite/index_html to
So I've got a very simple "folder_view" action working, and I'm about to
steal some of your code to make it a bit less simple. But now I'm not
so sure this is the right way to go, because the URLs are wrong.
You see, if I visit "/cmfsite/foo" (remember "foo" is a CMF folder), I
get a nearly-empty page with the folder's title and description. To see
my custom folder view, I have to visit "/cmfsite/foo/folder_view" --
yuck. Perhaps what I really need to do is define an index_html in my
skin. Guess I'll try that next.
