How to get root path with link_to?


#1

Hi,

I would like to get the root path of my website using link_to in a
view… (for example : http://www.mywebsite/controller/action/id)
how is that possible ?

(i do need it, because i use the generated code in the view outside of
the rails app’)

Thanks…

in routes.rb:
map.root ‘/’

in your view:
link_to ‘link to root’, root_url

Is that what you need?

Or you could just do this:

link_to “Link”, “/”

True, however won’t that just generate a relative url? So Link instead of Link?
I believe Guillaume requires the latter, as his views are also used
outside of his app.

link_to “Link”, “/”
