Perhaps I’m bing a bit thick and missing something obvious (possible),

but

I found the caveats listed in section 3.5 of the Associations Rails

Guidehttp://guides.rubyonrails.org/association_basics.html badly

worded and confusing.

The section gives an example with a has_many <-> belongs_to relationship

is

setup with inverse associations on both side, but then states the

caveat*“For belongs_to associations, has_many inverse associations are

ignored.”

*

Could someone actually explain what that means in concrete terms? The

example and the caveat appear to be contradictory. If the caveat is

correct

then I’m not sure I understand how the example works.
