hi, I have a has_many association between my sidebar and its blocks. class Sidebar has_many :blocks class Block belongs_to :sidebar I select them by using i.e. @sidebar = Sidebar.find(1,:include=>:blocks) and this gives me my sidebar and its blocks in one query. Then I save this @sidebar variable into a YAML file for fast access and deployment. I checked the YAML file by eye and it seems ok. Then I reload the YAML into my application (in console) and sidebar.blocks is there.. but whenever I try to access sidebar.blocks it queries the database. What can be wrong in this setup? The blocks is loaded from yaml file (console shows it) but whenever I try to access it queries the database. Thanks in advance onur

can it be a bug of to_yaml? here is an excerpt from yaml file. blocks is not a part of attributes. is it correct? --- !ruby/object:Sidebar attributes: name: main_sidebar default: "1" id: "1" blocks: - !ruby/object:Block attributes: name: static current_config: >2- --- !ruby/hash:HashWithIndifferentAccess title: network siteleri ....... .......

You want to save an AR object as yaml so you can reload it later without hitting the database? Is that it? If so then I recommend reloading the yaml into a different variable that is not an actual AR object. It seems that you are trying to short circuit AR by loading yaml instead of hitting the db? I don't think this will work correctly the way you are trying to do it. So just try loading the yaml into anonther var. Cheers- -Ezra Z.
