Multiple views with same controller


#1

Hi there,

I want to truncate all the data from user model being edited in
different tabs (e.g. privacy data like newsletter receiving, login data,
user data, etc.), being convinient for the user.

First I wrote a controller for each section editing the same model. I
just don’t think it’s the best way, that’s why I discarted it.

I’m taking care about the RESTfull resources, so of course, right now
it’s called <%= link_to ‘Edit member profile’,
edit_user_path(logged_in_user) %>.

I have about 30 information to edit in the user model and want to let
thm edit separately. How do you do that? Any experience, any
suggestions?

Greetings
Mayo

What about adding different actions to it (e.g. privacy, account,
userdata)?

I do have that right now in routes:

map.resources :users, :member => { :enable => :put } do |users|
users.resources :roles
users.resources :photos, :name_prefix => ‘user_’, :controller =>
‘user_photos’
users.resources :friends
users.resources :gardens
end

means adding: { :enable => :put, :privacy => :get, :account => :get,
:userdata => :get }

and then I create a new view for the depending actions?

What about calling a GET? Isn’t the update a PUT? Which of those to take
care about?

Being perfect the URL should look like
http://localhost:3000/users/7/privacy
