Hello everyone,

I am working on an app where the url needs to begin with the group_id
because the user will always navigate inside a group, its events and

My question is:

What is the best way to separate the group posts from the posts that a
particular user created for that group.

I am using right now the posts index to show all the group posts. Now
I want to show all the posts from a specific user on that group.

1) Should I create a new controller ?
2) A new action for the posts controller ?
3) Or maybe send an extra param to the posts index action to know if I
should display the group posts or the user posts on the group.

That's the three choices I have think about, what its the best thing
to do or is there any other option?

Have you looked into nested resources?





map.resources :groups has_many => :posts
