Any thoughts on how I could accomplish this then? Being new to Ruby and
Rails I’m struggling to determine what my options are.
Basically what I’m trying to do is swap out my right column depending on
where you are in the site. If you are on an article list page I want the
right column to have links to other categories, search, etc but once you
drill in to an article I want to have that all go away and to display
what is essentially meta data about the article (ie: title, posted by,
tags, categories, comments, trackbacks, etc).
Is this something that I could do somehow with a controller action that
determine which view to return? I could then create partial views that
include the necessary logic.
Does this make sense? How should I go about starting this?
Is there another way? A better way? I’m open to options. Trying to learn
here so I apologize for all the questions.
