I have been worried for the past couple of days by errors that show up on our Genii Software website that look like this:
Clearly, somewhere we have a URL reference to the COEXOrder form that is relative rather than absolute, but I have not been able to track it down. Then, I had a brainstorm. If it can't find the design note "http:/showcase.nsf/COEXOrder", maybe I could just add it as an alias. So, I did. The form name now shows as
COEXOrder | http:/showcase.nsf/COEXOrder | COEXOrder
so that it still saves as COEXOrder and still displays that way in the form list. The question is, is this:
- a stroke of genius?
- known trick used by every Domino developer since Ray Ozzie?
- a dangerous kludge?
- fraught with potential problems in ways I haven't thought of?
I don't know, but I have lots of smart readers. Maybe some of you know. It seems to work to resolve the problem, but it still seems like an odd sort of solution.
