I have a set of Sponsors that I would like to be able to select one at
random and display in the my html. I have already set up the DB,
scaffolded, set index controller and all is working smoothly.
I know that I can display them all by doing
<% for sponsor in @sponsors %>
<%= sponsor.name %>
<% end %>
How can I just select one of the sponsors to display each time someone
hits this page?
<%= @sponsors[(rand*(@sponsors.size-1)).round] %>
or make a method in your Sponsor model to be DRYer:
and then you can say @sponsor = Sponsor.random or whatever.
