Hi, newbie here. I'm using the Globalize plugin, which defines a model with the same name as one of my existing models. We both use a model called Country. The Globalize Country model (within vendors/...) is wrapped in module like this... module Globalize class Country < ActiveRecord::Base ... end end And this is my Country model (within app/models)... class Country < ActiveRecord::Base has_many :addresses ... end I'm not sure how to deal with this situation. My country table has a couple of fields that are unique, so I want to keep this information in the database (whether it be combined with the globalize_countries table, or maintained in a separate countries table). Also, I want to define my own class/instance methods etc and obviously I want to put these in my own model, completely separate from the Globalize plugin. But currently Country.find is invoking the Globalize Country class rather than my own. Can someone explain how I can deal with this situation as cleanly as possible? TIA, Estelle.
