Modifying scaffold method


I’ve made the following changes to scaffolding.rb. Is it possible to
put those changes into some type of a plugin or helper or something,
instead of directly modifying the Rails source?

(and, btw, I think pagination should be removed from scaffolding. And
deletes should only happen on post requests. That’s essentially what
I’ve changed).

Hey Joe:
scaffolding works great to show a demo of how rails is cool :slight_smile:

But when it comes to real application , we always end up changing those
classes. So use scaffolding as a starting point. Dont hesitate to change
BUT REMEMBER to back ur changes with unit and functional tests)
