Hello all, I have a main model Article, which is subclassed by several others like so: --- class Music < Article class RecordReview < Music; end class Interview < Music; end end class Film < Article class Review < Film; end class Interview < Film; end end ...etc --- Doing it this way I can simply call Music.all, or Music::RecordReview.all etc to find relevant articles. For simplicity I've decided to use only one controller ArticlesController. My URL schema is like this: --- '/music' '/music/record_reviews' '/music/record_reviews/1' '/music/record_reviews/new' '/music/record_reviews/1/edit' '/film' '/film/reviews' ...etc --- So - my question is - does anybody know a clean way to define this in routes.rb, bearing in mind that all requests need to be passed to the ArticlesController, which then needs to determine which type of article we're currently requesting. Right now i'm just doing something like this: --- map.connect ':section/:subsection/:id', :controller => 'articles', :action => 'show' ..etc --- and then I use a before_filter to determine the type from the :section and :subsection params - which works - but I then don't get any of the url/path helpers generated doing a map.resources so things are getting a bit messy. Thanks in advance

If you name the route you would... like: map.music ':section/:subsection/:id', :controller =>music', :action => 'show' then you could use music_url (:action=>'whatever', :section=>'section', :subsection=>'subsection', :id=>1)

Thanks Wally. Think this could work...
