@content_for_sidebar?


#1

Okay, I see this instance variable places, but I can not determine if it
is real
or where the content comes from. I’ve tried
views//sidebar.rhtml,
_sidebar.rhtml, views/layouts/sidebar.rhtml and
views/layouts/_sidebar.rhtml.

Does this actually exist? What’s the Rails Way to make a good sidebar?

Hey Dean,

Check out the docs on “content_for()” in the
ActionView::Helpers::CaptureHelper module.

Using this seems like an appropriate way to add a dynamic sidebar, but
perhaps a partial would be better for more static content. It really
depends on you! :slight_smile:

HTH,
Dan
