I have an application with items such as articles, bulletins, events,
weekly specials,… Each of these has its own MVC implmentation
and works well.
What I would like to do is have the home page display a dashboard that
contains many of these items, for example the last few articles,
a weekly special, upcoming events, and any bulletins with urgent news
for the users.
How do I go about getting all of these things to appear on the page and
in side bars? Can I just render them from the layout (this doesn’t seem
but I could be doing it wrong), or use content_for?
Please point me in the right direction.
