2 subdirectories 1 controller?

Hi,

I’d like to create the following setup with RoR:

www.mywebsite.com/subdir1/order/create
www.mywebsite.com/subdir2/order/create

I’d like both urls to call the same action in the same controller. How
can
I do this? I know this may be complicated, but I’m prepared to go a
long
way.

In your controller:

class SubDir::OrderController < ApplicationController
end

In app/views you have to create subdir directory to put the views
concerning this controller.

That approach won’t quite give you what your after. That approach
will put a controller in a subdirectory, sure, but from what you said
you want the same action and controller accessed from two different
sub-directories.

To do this I would use routes. I don’t have a box with ruby on it in
front of me but from memory something like.

map.connect “/subdir1/:controller/:action/:id”
map.connect “/subdir2/:controller/:action/:id”

Should get you started. You can get very tricky with routes. Try
searching this list, along with the standard google, and doc search.

Cheers

Sorry, I didn’t get that :slight_smile:
Daniel N is right, routes is what you’re looking for.

Correct me if I’m wrong, but won’t this solution simply allow the order
controller to be called from one subdir? Lets say I do as you
recommended:

class subdir1::OrderController < ApplicationController
def create
end
end

This will give me the following url:

www.mywebsite.com/subdir1/order/create

But I wan’t two urls to call the same controller/action:

www.mywebsite.com/subdir1/order/create
www.mywebsite.com/subdir2/order/create

How can I achieve this?

Thanks, I will check that out!
