Configuring routes

Hi RoR gurus,

For my project, I have been trying to create the resources with the
following urls:
hxxp://domain/projects/active [for active projects]
hxxp://domain/projects/archived [for archived projects]

Subsequently, I created the public methods active and archived in the
ProjectController and created the related views.

I also added the following route in the routes.rb

  • map.connect “:controller/:action”
    to the already existing default routes.

However when I click on the links for the active and archived
projects, it throws me an error ‘Couldn’t find Project with
ID=active’.

Am I missing something? Or is this sort of thing not permitted and we
are expected to use only the 7 golden actions?

Mea Culpa.

I had completely forgotten about the default routes created by the
map.resources method. To move around the error, I had to just add my
route right at the top.

The code works like a charm now!
Cheers.

This change though breaks the show action of the form

  • http:///projects/1

link_to(‘Project’, project)

Anyone has any other ideas?

Instead of this, add your actions to the existing resources for
projects:

map.resources :projects, :collection => [:active, :archived]

This will add them as special cases under /projects and assume there is
no specific id to operate on.

For more information, take a look at:

http://api.rubyonrails.com/classes/ActionController/Resources.html#M000308

This will give you details about the :collection and :member options to
resources and also how to restrict these actions to particular HTTP
methods.

Mark,
Many thanks for the help. Your tip worked perfectly!

Although I did read the API, I missed the fine print :frowning: Many thanks
once again - will be more careful now on and do my homework before
posting a question to the group!
