I'm trying to figure out if there's a way to find the URL of the
nearest instance of acs-subsite surrounding the current node.

This would be really useful when you need to redirect to things like
permissions, site map, subsite admin, etc., instead of hardcoding a
redirect to /permissions, for example.

Lars, check out site-nodes-procs.tcl in /packages/dotlrn/tcl/. It's a bunch of utilities I wrote to do just this sort of thing. You probably want site_nodes::get_parent_id (which returns a node_id) and site_nodes::get_url_from_node_id.

Cool, thanks. Didn't know about that.
