Changing the path for map.resources

Hi there, just starting to get my head around routes but have a
problem that I can’t google my way out of. I have a restful resource
that’s mapped as:

map.resources :terms

which gives me localhost/terms, however I want it to be localhost/
buzzwords instead.

I tried using path_prefix but this just added the prefix before /
terms. I guess I really want a path_replace kind of thing…

Refactoring the code would be a real pain. Is there any way to do this
in the routes.rb file?

Thanks,

Steve

You need to invert the logic:

map.resources :buzzwords, :controller => “terms”

Or the other way round:

map.resources :terms, :as => ‘buzzwords’

See the other options for resources here

many thanks guys, I ended up using the , :as => and it did the trick.

thanks for the link felix - it’s now in my bookmarks!

True, though I guess I like being able to see the name up front. It
seems like a more “top down” way: the resource mapping is buzzwords,
the implementation involves the terms controller, etc.

(Unless there’s some subtle difference that I’m overlooking in the
effect they have.)
