While this isn't Plone related, it was suggested that I post this Zope question here and hopefully someone will be able to show me a good solution.
The details are posted on StackOverflow at
However, as Matthew Wilkes replied, this might not be possible using DTML directly (though I hope it is).
The issue at hand is that when a blog article is written, images need to be posted within the article's content in the correct places. In order for Zope to display those images, DTML is used with variables to gather the various folders in the path, as well as the image's filename. Additionally, I designed it so that the dtml-var tag would call a dtml-document which contains both html and dtml code, allowing a site redesign in the future without having to edit every blog post individually.
I am open to creative suggestions and a potential redesign of the workflow, but at this point I do not see how I would ever be able to allow someone to post a blog article with images in the article's content, without storing the dtml code within the article and thus within the db column, which is why I am trying to figure out a way to make Zope render the dtml-var code that the ZSQL Method returns.
Thanks in advance for any and all assistance.
