Hi, I'd like to be able to do a database query, fetch some text, and add an 'Accept Request' and 'Deny Request' within the text. Both of these would be links so if the user were to click on them, they would essentially send POST requests back to the server. Since this is dynamic, I wanted to know the safest/best approach in embedding these links within fetched text coming from a query? Should I embed the 'link_to("Accept Request"....)' in the text before saving it in the database, so that when it gets fetched, the view should automatically parse that and see a link_to? Or, are there other ways. Thanks.

If you want to embed the link_to in the database, you'll need to render it inside of a controller. This seems like the best way to avoid "hard coding the links". I've tried my hardest to produce a plugin that would render text held within <view</view> tags, but it appears that rails is setup in a way that makes this nearly impossible.
