Help With Loop please

New to rails! Thanks for reading

I have a database that stores link URL’s and their names in one
table.

DB Table is named: links

Model name : Link

Controller: admin

Links are stored in the “link_url” column
Their names are stored in the “title” column
They all are assigned an ID on auto increment.

What I want to do is display 10 links at a time out of (50+ links)
And be able to rotate the links on a weekly basis, and display that in
a partial.

Can anyone help me with this timed loop to display 10 links at a time
from my db? Or refer me to a chapter in a rails book. Thanks!

This is the default code to display them all.

<% for link in @links -%>

<%= h(link.title) %>
<% end %>

How about selecting a range based on the day of month (so you can show
a different subset of @links based on what week of the month you’re
in).

Something like:

case Time.now.day
when 1…7
range = 0…10
when 8…14
range = 11…20
when 15…21
range = 21…30
else
range = 31…50
end

<% @links[range].each do |link| %>
