Nesting layouts?


#1

Hi all,
Currently I am working on a site which in principle consists of three
div’s, a menu, a left div and a right div. Now the content of the left
and right div can vary wildly but the overall ‘feeling’ should be the
same.
Now I have one template, called ‘index.rhtml’ which checks in a long
list of if-then-else what to render. This is of course really really
ugly. I would rather have some this like @content_for_layout but now
@content_for_left_div and @content_for_right_div. Is this possible?
Moreover, if it’s not, do partials have the same access to global
variables as the parent template? That would also help a lot in cleaning
up.
Thanks in advance.

Another consideration would be to put your navbar in a application
helper. That works very well also.

Look at content_for()
