Greetings,

I'm wondering if I can do action specific layouts in an elegant way like
this:

class AuthorsController < ApplicationController
  before_filter :is_admin?, :only => [:new, :create, :edit, :update,
:destroy]

  layout "admin", :except => [:index, :show]

  make_resourceful do
    actions :index, :show, :new, :create, :edit, :update
  end

end

I'm aware that you can do it in each action with:

def index
  render :layout => "layout"
end

However, in a need to keep it clean I don't want to write that.  Looking
at the layout method source, it appears that it should accept options.
However, if I set :only or :except the layout is only correctly "admin"
for the ones specified (or excepted), and the others render without a
layout.

Thoughts?

Thanks,

Jason

perhaps a before or after filter to set it based on
controller.action_name ?
