I have a problem that I thought I could solve with acts_as_tree but
I’m thinking now that acts_as_tree doesn’t quite fit the bill.
Basically I have a standard hierarchy with 1 difference:
\ Leaf 1
\ Node 2
\ Leaf 2
\ Node 3
\ Leaf 3
\ Link back to Node 3 **** HARD BIT
\ Node 4 \ Leaf 4 \ Leaf 5
The problem is Node 3’s parent is Node 2 so linking back to Node 3 is
node5.children << node 3 – This will cause node3’s parent_id be
node5 and not node 2
Can anyone think of a way to do this??
