This routing recipe looks invaluable. Thanks again to everyone at

Cool. When can we download these? (I’ve just bought the combo deal but
these chapters weren’t in it yet…)

Whoops, they are there after all! They’re kind of hidden though, I think
there’s a small bug in the bookmarks view. For instance “Make your URLs
pretty” is under “Authentication”. And “Making Your Own Rails Plugins”
is under “Automating Development With Your Own Generators”. (expand
bookmarks to see what I mean)

Dave,
Thanks for the update. I just downloaded the new revision and I see that
the bookmarking is still borked. Bookmarks are incorrectly nested within
subjects. I’ve already informed Chad about this, but just wanted to pass
along that my “fresh” version still has the problem.
Thanks for a great book!

Yeah–that’s a know bug with the beta–turns out to be hard to fix… :frowning:

Just got the new version today at work. Haven’t had a chance to read all
the
new ones yet, though.

Looking good, thanks!
