Having two paths for a single action with different parameters

Hi,

I have a controller named users and index action in it. By default I
have
the path

get ‘/users’ => ‘users#index’, :as => ‘users’

Now I want to create one more path with a different parameter being
passed

get ‘/users/:city’ => ‘users#index’, :as => ‘list_users’

But this gives as error, No route matches {:controller=>“users”}.

I ran rake routes and found the path I defined to be present over there
but
it doesn’t works.

What shall be done to make this work.

I’ve no experience with routes exactly like that (considering to me it
seems illogical) but maybe Rails see the same broken logic, in that
you are trying to define two routes to same action when one route
/should/ be a /one action/ have you tried creating a new action in
your controller and seeing if the error still happens? Example: "get
“/users/:city” => “users#by_city”, :as => “by_city” but since I’ve not
seen the entire error and just what rails reports at the top are you
sure UsersController has index? Are you sure it’s not User instead of
Users (I don’t quite remember of Rails will do the plural game on
routes like it does with tables via ActiveRecord.)

Yes, I did try this but it didn’t. In fact, the custom route I defined,
if
I define it as following it works.

get ‘/users’ => ‘users#index’, :as => ‘list_users’

But as soon as I define the extra parameter with it, it fails. Same with
defining a new action.

Is there anyway you can send us the entire trace to look at? You can
post it to a github gist so you can delete it after a while if you
need to, but it would be nice to see the actual trace so we can see
what where is going on and advise you better.

Where do you get this error? How are you calling the route? Do you get
the error
if you go to localhost:3000/users/my_city? I don’t see any error with
this
route.
show the code that produces the error and we’ll go from there.

Btw, you should be able to call that route like this

list_users_path(‘my_city’)

characters and also by removing any of it and it started working fine.

well for understanding, If you add a symbol like(:city) in the routes it
takes that as a variable and whenever you call that route you have to
pass
a variable like “list_users_path(:city)” or “/users/(:city)”.

Thanks a lot. It worked but with slight modification.

I used,

:constraints => { :city => /.*/ }

It
