How do I destroy all the posts when the board is destroyed?

I got a application like following.

A board has many posts
All posts belong to a board

I try to destroy all the posts under a board when I destroy the board.
My destroy function is following.

def destroy
@board = Board.find(params[:id])
@post = @board.posts
@post.destroy
@board.destroy

respond_to do |format|
  format.html { redirect_to(boards_url) }
  format.xml  { head :ok }
end

end

However, it does not work.
Could anyone tell me how to destroy all the posts when the board is
destroyed?

My source code is following.

Take a look at the :dependent option for associations:

1)

class Board < ActiveRecord::Base
has_many :posts, :dependent => :destroy
end

  1. posts.each do |post|
    post.destroy
    end

  2. posts.delete_all

You are quoting my post, where I give you a solution that handles
everything with less coding effort in the model, where it belongs… But
fiddling around with a hack in the controller, that simply shouldnt do
such work.

But maybe I am the one who is wrong?

Hi I got a solution. Here is my destroy function. Many thanks for the
reply.

def destroy
@board = Board.find(params[:id])
@board.posts.destroy_all
@board.destroy

respond_to do |format|
  format.html { redirect_to(boards_url) }
  format.xml  { head :ok }
end

end
