Path helper help

I have a controller:

class HomeController < ApplicationController
def index

end

def about
end

def contact
end

def terms
end

def privacy
end
end

My routes.rb has:

resources :home do
member do
get ‘about’
get ‘contact’
get ‘terms’
get ‘privacy’
end
end

In my application.html.erb I have:

  • About
  • It seems to be expecting an id?

    I’m getting the error:

    No route matches {:action=>“about”, :controller=>“home”}

    Rake routes shows:

    about_home GET /home/:id/about(.:format) home#about

    Maybe it could be a inflection problem:

    “home”.pluralize
    “homes”

    The convention is that a controller is the pluralized name of the model.

    Use “collection” instead “member”

    Thanks, that worked. Although it doesn’t make sense, it isnt’ a
    colleciton
    so I guessed to use member.

    BTW, how could I match this:

    /home/some-name-here

    Where ‘some-name-here’ is the parameter (id), and I want to call
    home#show

    You can use

    match ‘home/:page’ => ‘home#page’ <<<< before
    resources :home <<<< after

    home_controller

    def page

    use params[:page]

    end

    Rails routes are matched in the order they are specified, so if you
    have a resources
    :photos above a get ‘photos/poll’ the show actions route for the
    resourcesline will be matched before the
    get line. To fix this, move the get line above the resources line so
    that
    it is matched first.

    this isn’t advisable. home/:page will match home/1

    i’m not saying that it won’t work. i’m saying that it’s not good
    practice.
    i would’ve agreed
    with your method if you added constraints to values of the :page
    parameter.

    use params[:page]

    home#show

    I have a controller:
    end
    resources :home do
