How to use RESTful routes

Okay, this has come up before… but it is NOT working for me sigh
but, I’m hoping someone can tell me why. (Rails version 1.2.6)

Let’s say I want to create an off the wall method in my Users
controller, called login. I also create the view for this action,
login.erb. My first problem was that /users/login did not work (rails
mistook login for being :id). So that was fixed with:

map.resources :users, :collection => {:login => :get }

But now, I want my users to be able to click login from the homepage,
simple enough? But this RESTful link generates a no method error.

<%= link_to ‘Login’, login_users_path %>

What have I missed/why does this not work?

$ rake routes

:slight_smile:

Do I have to run that? Does that change any files that I can just
upload themselves? I can’t just go around raking things on my shared
host…

rake routes just help you figure out what is available.
