You’re bumping after less than 2 hours? Why? That will just annoy the
people who could help you.

Then go read the routing documentation. In general, try not to ask the
list until you’ve read the docs.

Routes are eval’ed from top to bottom as defined, first match wins.
Sounds like you need a catch-all route at the bottom of routes.rb that
sends the user to your ‘buggy url’ page if no other route matched the
request.

There are a number of good tutorials out there for routing in Rails, and
perhaps

http://api.rubyonrails.org/classes/ActionController/Routing.html

is a good place to start.

And I second Marnen. Your emergency is your emergency, not anyone
else’s. And people may be more apt to respond to a post that states the
issue and what you have tried to resolve it, or the research you have
done. Otherwise the request for help comes across as ‘Someone fix this
for me, I want/need it’

An alternative place to start (maybe better for a beginner) is the
routing guide at http://guides.rubyonrails.org/ After the getting
started guide of course and others.

If I understand the question correctly you want to go to a particular
page when the user enters an invalid controller or action? When
running in production mode this, by default, displays the page
public/404.html. You can make this page display what you like. Is
that what you are looking for?

Colin

Actually true … :slight_smile:
But i found its solution in development mode also …

Dear Hemant,

First thing, please do read routes guide, and preferably a rails book.
it
will help you understand things better. But as far your question goes,
your
are seeing error because your are running your app in development mode.
Try
running it in production mode, and you will see a 404 page (present
here:
public/404.html) Customize it as you want.

Lastly, please be patient when you are expecting others to solve your
problems, and yes, Google always help. So use it.
