#52 closed defect (wontfix)

web operations' result pages should be capable of reload

Description

Currently

  • the create operation on /list
  • the power on/off operations on /info

lead to pages that look like the pages the user started from, but are obtained by POST and from a different, otherwise useless URI; in particular, reload doesn't work.

It's good that these operations are POST requests. Probably the response to such a request should be a redirect to the appropriate /list or /info URI, not a 200 with the latter page's contents.

Done in r407 for operations with back='info'.

The create operation on /list gives a message that has some usefulness, since the command's effect is in among a potentially long list of VMs. Maybe we want a way to keep that message while going back to the /list URI.

Actually, the best thing is probably to highlight that row in the VM list. That doesn't even have to be based on having created the VM "in this request"; it can be based on having created it "recently", time-wise, like Trac seems to do with its ticket list.
