Protect to_xml and/or disabled other format


#1

hello,
how protect to_xml and disabled other format or accpet only html
format

example : if user type in url www.mysite/controller.xml , i want to
redirect to another controller.

it’s possible to use a routes to do that ?

one way would be a before_filter, e.g.

class ApplicationController < ActionController::Base

before_filter :trap_xml

def trap_xml
if params[:format] == ‘xml’ && params[:action] != ‘my_xml_action’
redirect_to :controller => ‘my_xml_controller’, :action =>
‘my_xml_action’
end
end

end

yes it’s this.
thanks
