Linking to an external model/view within an application


#1

Hey guys,

I am working on a class project and I have two scaffolded models,
articles and sub_articles. I have the relationships set to articles
having many sub_articles and sub_articles belonging to articles, which
is also stated in the routes file.

I am trying to display a link to each sub article when viewing a
specific article, as it stands now I can display the link with the sub
article title but it links back to the same article.

here are some code samples:

this is my sub article partial that shows the links,

  • <%= link_to (sub_article.title), h(sub_article.id) %>
  • how do i add the prefix sub_articles/ to the id link?

    also when I go to a url like /sub_articles/1 I get an unknown action
    error, but I have a show.html.erb file

    your help would be greatly appreciated, thank you all.

    link_to(sub_article.title, sub_article)

    Rails knows the rest.

    but that ends up with a link that looks like this in the browser

    http://localhost:3000/articles/1#<SubArticle:0x597e8c0>

    do i need to add something else where to make this work?
