Quick question: Whats the easiest way to implement a global partial? Where I can call one partial from many different controllers (err controller views)?

IIRC, you can simply prefix the partial name with a path and it will work. ex: render :partial => "partials/myglobalpartial" will render app/views/partials/_myglobalpartial.rhtml Is that what you were looking for?

Why not put it in the layouts directory? You could just have /layouts/_mypartial.rhtml and call like render :partial => "layouts/mypartial" I haven't tried it, so I can't verify if it works or not, but I'd much rather keep items that are global in the layouts directory where my layout is stored. Of course, I am assuming that you are using a layout... which would be best if you are using the same base markup for all of your pages. HTH, Ryan
