Two questions for you all…
- I have an admin section to a site I’m building. Here’s the pertinent
bit of the layout that all controllers are using:
I’m using @content_for_layout to display various controller actions such
as new, edit, list etc. My problem is that for each controller I want a

accomplish this without altering the layout to look something like this:
…There has to be a much more DRY way of doing that. Perhaps a helper
that takes the controller name as an argument? Other suggestions?
- I’m used to building searches and sorting mechanisms with PHP that
analyze a $_GET request and display data based on those parametrs. URLs
end up looking like:
I have no idea how to build something simple like this with Rails – can
someone provide some code for me to look at that does just this? I’m
very much a learn by seeing kind of guy and would greatly appreciate it.
