Multiple actions for one route (making pretty URLs hit diffe


#1

Hi all,

I’m trying to make pretty URLs using routes for some of my actions
across different controllers. For example:

http://www.example.com/london ->
http://www.example.com/articles/show_by_name/london

But if the id ‘about’ couldn’t be found, then to search for it as
another action, this time from the ‘branch’ controller.

http://www.example.com/london ->
http://www.example.com/branches/show_by_name/london

And so on, checking through different actions in different controllers,
until it finds something that matches.

How can I achieve this, preferably without building a specific
controller/action to handle and forward requests to the appropriate
pages?

Thanks a lot!

Tom
