Alright, I got this table with lots of entries for menus. There's several menus (with their own model since each menu got some special information). Now, I want to be able to specify the order of the menu entries inside the menu. acts_as_list seems to not quite do the trick since it does ordering "globally" on the whole model and acts_as_nested_set seems like overkill since I'm never going to need more then one menu's entries at a time. Should I got for acts_as_nested_set or should I simply create my own ordering system with a column and some checks that makes sure no numbers are repeated inside each menu's entries? I have a feeling there is a nice and good solution lurking out there though. I hope I'm making any sense, kinda late, but I was hoping for some good answers to read tomorrow morning. Thanks! Mathias.

You could use acts_as_list :scope => :menu_id This way the scope for the list is set to be within only the menu that the item belongs to. Each menu has another list.

Beautiful. I had a feeling I was overlooking something that would do exactly what I wanted. Muchos gracias! :D Mathias.
