Blog_id magic with typo

Hi All,

I am modifying typo so as, I can host multiple blogs on the same typo.
And its almost done, except that…i am stuck at one place.

When a user posts a new article, depending upon current blog_id, I
would like to set the blog_id attribute of @article object.

So…in the admin/content_controller.rb:

We have:

def new_or_edit
if request.post?
set_article_author
save_attachments
logger.info("**** and blog id in article is #{@article.blog_id}")
if @article.save
set_article_categories
set_the_flash
redirect_to :action => ‘show’, :id => @article.id
end
end
end

So, just before the actual save, the value printed by logger.info is
“**** and blog id in article is 2”.But after @article.save is
called…whatever may be the current blog_id, the value that gets
stored in database is always 1. And I have no clue, why is this.

Another pointer. In content.rb model i have defined validate_on_create
callback and here goes code for that:

def validate_on_create
logger.info("$$$ and blog id in article after save is
#{self.blog_id}")

my own financial domain kung-fu

end

so…the above code also prints blog_id as 2 just before saving the
article. But again…the value that goes in database is always 1.

Any clues, why is this?

I am really lost here. Though i can manage this with some crude
hack…i don’t want to do that. Can any typo hacker have a look in the
code and point me…which filter actually sets the blog_id
automagically to default one.

Yeah, okay – but don’t keep us all in suspense. What was the solution?

Oh…i didn’t think somebody anybody else would be interested here.
Anyway the issue was with following code snippet:

def initialize(*args)
super(*args)
set_default_blog
end

def set_default_blog
if self.blog_id == nil or self.blog_id == 0
self.blog = Blog.default
end
end

I don’t know how, but the above code resets the blog_id to 1 always,
so i changed this code to:

def initialize(*args)
super(*args)
set_default_blog
end

def set_default_blog
if self.blog_id == nil or self.blog_id == 0
self.blog = Blog.set_default_with_user(self.user_id)
end
end

where set_default_with_user is a method that i added to blog.rb.
