Routes

My best guess at how to make this route

map.connect ‘:user’, :controller => ‘user’, :action => ‘profile’

makes my

link_to :controller => ‘admin’, :action => ‘index’

stop working ?

I’m needing urls like http://localhost:3000/username but without
breaking all my other controller index actions in the process.

Thanks.

Do you still have the map.connect ‘:controller/:action’ route at the
end?

I have map.connect ‘:controller/:action/:id’ at the end.

Can you post your complete routes file?

ActionController::Routing::Routes.draw do |map|
map.connect ‘:user’, :controller => ‘user’, :action => ‘profile’
map.connect ‘’, :controller => ‘home’
map.connect ‘:controller/:action/:id’
end

Back to your original question, when you say it breaks the other routes,
you
mean it puts them intoa query string formatted url?

Like ?

Also, just to give it a shot, move the new :user route you created after
the
last :controller/:action/:id route.

I think you could do this and it would work:

ActionController::Routing::Routes.draw do |map|
map.connect ‘’, :controller => ‘home’
map.connect ‘:controller/:action/:id’
map.connect ‘:user’, :controller => ‘user’, :action => ‘profile’
end

I’m no routes expert by any means, but I think this may open up some
issues
for you. If it’s an option, I think it would be best to do something
like:

http://localhost:3000/profile/username

good luck!
