Multiple controllers links


#1

Hello experts,

I’ve got two different models and controllers. Lets call them Author
and Book respectively. Also Author has_many :books, and Book
belong_to :author.

with this setup I get urls looking like
http://localhost:3000/author/14/book/173.

Is there a way to get rid of the ‘book’ controller name from the url?
I’d be more happy to see http://localhost:3000/author/14/173 instead.

Or my design is completely wrong and I am missing something importing?

I hope this can be accomplished with a routes, but not sure how.

Please point me out to the right direction.

Regards,
Chandra

you could probably just set up your own route in config/routes.rb for
it, or maybe some of the configuration options for map.resources can
do it:
