Simple dumb rails from datastore question


#1

hi, ive just started learning rails and im trying to make a simple blog
app

i have the following code on my index page

i can add articles ok but i cant display them

everything ive tried to put between the h1 tags fails?
what should I put between the tags to display the data stores in the
body and title fields

<%= link_to ‘New Article’, :action => ‘new’ %>

<% for article in @articles %>

<%= link_to 'Show', article %> <%= link_to 'Edit', edit_article_path(article) %> <%= link_to 'Destroy', article, :confirm => 'Are you sure?', :method => :delete %> <% end %>

Thanks for any help

assuming that the articles table has a title field, then

<% @articles.each do |article| %>

<%= article.title %>

<% end %>

would display it.

But if I remember right, H1 tags within a table are not valid html
You would have to put them into a TD tag I think. Maybe your
code was right and your browser didn’t display it for that
reason
