Why does that not help you? nextURL() is really the method you want to 
override in your custom add view class. I know why it seems difficult though. 
Here is the scoop. You probably have troubles getting to the created content 

The trick is to override the add() method as well, so that you can store the 
new content object's absolute URL:

  def add(self, content):
    located = self.context.add(content)
    self.absURL = zapi.absoluteURL(located, self.request)
    return located

  def nextURL(self):
    return self.absURL + '@@edit.html'

Note that I did not test the code, but it should be correct.
