Collections must not change visible section

Even though collections are stored inside the MemberFolder? in Community section, they are accessed from the other sections (since collections can only contain stuff from the three other sections). The visibile theme color should not switch to Community, but rather stay the same (one of the other three).

Here's a solution proposal:

  • create a special object with id "mycollections" under each of the three first section main levels
  • this object will have call or bobo_traverse methods that will internally change the acquisition path so that /content/mycollections accesses the database at /community/CURRENTUSER/collections and /content/mycollections/COLL1 at /community/CURRENTUSER/collectionc/COLL1

OK, tried with bobo_traverse. Otherwise it works OK, except that the site is riddled with absolute links, and Plone's forms are pretty much built on them. So it's impossible to keep the browser in this faked path, since the first absolute_url call will jump to the real path.

Some other method to change the visible section is needed, even though the URL cannot be changed. But will this confuse those users who can read the URL? Because the URL will point to the community section, and if the skin looks like it's in activities for example, is this a problem?

One option is to override absolute_url* methods and handle this special case...

(In [1141]) closes #849 spent 4h a bit of CSS hack to keep user in the same section when viewing collections.

Does not work. Click here on the "view collections" link and see how the section will change: http://lemill.net/content/ulevaade-uusmeedia-valdkonnast/view
