An acquisition-oriented question.
If I have a top level directory containing HTML stuff and page templates, I
usually like to keep all the images in an Images subdirectory, just for
neatness, like so:
In one site, I want to have a folder per different look-and-feel, thus:
...so acquisition helps me by allowing me to override specific files by
putting them in a LookAndFeel folder; lots of default stuff is acquired from
This of course, includes the Images folder - if I refer to
LookAndFeel1/Images, all works because Images is acquired.
However, the contents of Images aren't overrideable - hence:
if Top-level-folder/Images contains logo.jpg and example.jpg
and I decide to override logo for LookAndFeel1 by creating its own Images
and putting logo.jpg in there, as:
...then acqusition works fine for references to
/LookAndFeel1/Images/logo.jpg, but reference to
LookAndFeel1/Images/example.jpg fail. I understand why; acquisition works
by containment, so Images can be acquired because it exists in a container
found on the way up the hierarchy, but once an Images is found, that's yer
Okay, I understand the behaviour - how would Zope gurus do this differently
to let acquisition work for me?
