Newbie Q: How to find the user that the question belongs_to

I have a User and a Question model, User has_many questions and Question
belongs_to user.

On my question show page, I show a question, along with the name of the
user who’s asking the question.

Everything seems to be working fine, but my controller looks like this:

questions_controller.rb
.
.
.
def show
@question = Question.find(params[:id])
@user = User.find(@question.user_id)
end

I know rails must have a less messy way to figure out which user the
question belongs to. I’ve read that using something like question.user
would give me what I need, but I can’t figure out how to implement it in
my controller.

Sorry for the simple question, any suggestions are appreciated. Thanks!

but in fact there is no need to do that in the controller. In the
view just use @question.user.name or whatever it is. That assumes
that every question will have a user, if there is any chance that a
question will not have a user then @question.user.name would fail as
user would be nil, so you would have to cope with that.

Since you are asking the question I suggest that you work through a
good tutorial which would give the basics of rails. railstutorial.org
is good and is free to use online.

I guess you are looking for this or probably i misunderstood your
question
def show
@question = Question.find(params[:id])
@user = @question.user
end
