Rendering partials in layouts?

Hello all,

Forgive me if this is a really stupid question. How do you render
partials in a layout? It’s probably way easier than i believe it to be.
thanks!

Hi Jon

Not sure if this is what you need, but you can use

<%= render(:partial => “name_of_partial”) %>
where the name_of_partial is a rhtml file started with ‘_’ for example
_name_of_partial.rhtml

Hope this help :slight_smile:

You only need to specify the controller if the partial is in a different
folder than the layout file that’s calling it.

If you have partials accessed by several controllers, you can put them
in a
separate folder under app/views (ie: “shared”) and call thus:

<%= render :partial => “shared/_my_partial” %>

In other words, they don’t have to be stored in a folder that
corresponds to
a controller name.

Hey Jon

What Jon suggested should work. But remember to include the name of the
controller/directory the partial is under.

so
<%= render :partial => “mycontroller/my_partial” %>

for the partial stored as app/views/mycontroller/_my_partial.rhtml

There is also the content_for method that allows dynamic content to be
included to a layout. May or may not be helpful to you. Just another
avenue to explore.
