i need help setting up the routes for my app. I have created about 10 controllers in the app/controllers/pro directory: app/controllers/pro/address_controller.rb app/controllers/pro/certification_controller.rb app/controllers/pro/program_controller.rb app/controllers/pro/program_controller.rb and so on... The problem is that I would like to also use app/controllers/pro as a controller; so app/controllers/pro_controller.rb i know my routes are wrong but this is what i have: map.connect ':controller/service.wsdl', :action => 'wsdl' map.connect "pro/:controller/:action" map.connect "pro/", :controller=>"pro", :action=>"index" # Install the default route as the lowest priority. map.connect ':controller/:action/:id' Any help would be appreciated, Nate

Where you want to mess with your routes most of the time, is if you want to set up a default controller for something like localhost/, (the equivalent of www.site.com) There you can setup something like: map.connect '', :controller => 'pro', :action => 'index' which sets the base controller for your app for someone who arrives at yoursite.com instead of yoursite.com/pro. Does that clear anything up?

Here is an explanation of routes: http://rails.outertrack.com/notes/list_new

I think i understand how routes work and that explanation also helps but the problem i'm running into is this... without specifying any routes (except for the default) when i try to go to localhost:3000/pro it works and takes me to the index action of the app/controllers/pro_controller.rb; however, when i try to go to localhost:3000/pro/address I want to access the index action of app/controllers/pro/address_controller.rb but instead it's looking for the address action of app/controllers/pro_controller.rb . that's essentially where my problem is; do i need to configure routes to get around this? I know that i could create an individual route for every controller under app/controllers/pro like map.connect 'pro/address/:action', :controller=>"pro/address" but that just does not make sense to me.

You have conflicting controllers. You can't have a pro controller and a pro folder... you've got to pick one or the other. Best thing do do is make a pro/base_controller.rb and then route requests for pro/ to that one. map.connect 'pro/:action/:id, :controller => "pro/base" See if that works. (untested but modified from a project where I do this with 'admin/'

Paste your routes file. It has to do with the order of the routes.

What you are doing wrong is that your controller is not named pro but pro/pro. You did create the by the command script/generate controller 'pro/pro' right? This should work: map.connect 'pro', :controller => "pro/pro", :acton => 'index' An then remove the line map.connect "pro/:controller/:action" as the default route should be fine.

Whoops.. Didn't read your mail well enought. Sorry. Silly me. you can't have both pro and also pro/something controllers. It has to be named as something else. I'm guessing you are trying to make a page that is /pro and then if you click something there you go to pages like /pro/address/12 Create a controller pro/front with action :index. map.connect 'pro', :controller => "pro/front", :acton => 'index' On 6/11/06, Jon Gretar Borgthorsson <firstname.lastname@example.org> wrote: > > > > > :action=>"index" > > -- > Jon Gretar Borgthorsson > http://www.jongretar.net/ > --
