I have two models, ladder and statistic The relationship is ladder has_many statistics statistic belongs_to ladder In a view for my ladder controller action show, I am redirecting the user to an action in my statistics controller using <% form for ladder_statistics_path(@ladder) do |f| %> <%= submit_tag 'Create' %> <%end%> I would think that in the statistics controller the object @ladder and all of its attributes would be available to me, but only the id is available in the params hash as params[:ladder_id] I have to explicitly call @ladder = ladder.find(params[:ladder_id]) in the statistics controller to get @ladder.name is this normal, or am I doing something wrong?
