How to generate this URL

I’m stumped trying to generate an URL for a working route. I’ve this
route definition:

map.connect ‘foo/:foo_id/propose_something/:zap_id’,
:controller => “foo”,
:action => “propose_something”

When I browse to this url:
http://localhost:3000/foo/2/propose_something/5,
my propose_something method gets invoked with the correct params
hash. So one would think that all is good, but I’m stuck trying to
generate the corresponding URL to pass to link_to.

I would think that this would do it:
url_for(:controller => “foo”, :action => ‘propose_something’, :foo_id
=> 1, :zap_id => 13)

But this generates this URL:
http://localhost:3000/foo/propose_something?foo_id=1&zap_id=13

To work around this, I’ve constructed the string manually, but that
feels nasty in all sorts of ways…

Can someone point out what the heck I’m doing wrong?

Thanks,
east

url_for(:controller => “foo”, :action => (’/’ + :foo_id +
‘/propose_something’), :zap_id => 13)

You might not need the parens but it tends to help me spot what the
intent was right away.

That said, I probably would rethink my ‘routes’ and use routes and
methods that tended towards standardization and have my methods parse
the params.
