Forum OpenACS Development: Re: Auto-localization of variables

Posted by Dave Bauer on
Perhaps we need two types or localization.

One with variable replacement and one without. The variable replacement is the problem. I can't see any reason to substitute variables inside message keys in a form posting.

I think it makes more sense to replace the varaibles you know need replacing in the Tcl datasource. Perhaps it was a mistake to auto-localize variables. This also puts a large amount of uneeded processing on most variables. User entered data generally does not include message keys, ie: forum postings, CMS content, etc.
