Forum OpenACS Q&A: What's the deal with pull-down-menus? (+ Testing time)
noticed that the entire module is riddled with links without
extensions, like this one:
<form method=post action=pdm-delete-2>
I don't know who did that or why, but under AOLserver 3.3.1, it fails

Also, I made a bunch of commits to the CVS tree today. Lots, including
the photodb module ported by Vinod Kurup (addition approved by Ben).
Please fetch that version and test, test, test, so we can make a
I went through the SDM and closed a bunch of reports associated with

I beleive the reason for leaving off the extensions is to abstract away the mechanism by which you are serving pages, be it html, tcl, adp, or whatever. Therefore when you redesign your site using new technology you don't break your links since .tcl isn't hardcoded. The ACS request processor - see the doc pages - is supposed to figure out what page to serve. At least this is how it worked back in Sept. Back then in the config file you specified what extensions to try and in what order.
hope this helps
The issue is that it doesn't work and I want to know if this is broken (in which case we should put the .tcl extensions back in the links) or if this is a feature that's just not working.
