activerecord result set count

Hello all,

Can anyone clear this up for me?...

Example: 1 table, 1 record in table

result = Stuff.find(:all)


=> 1

result = Stuff.find(1)


NoMethodError: undefined method `size'...blah blah

result = Stuff.find(:all, :conditions => 'id =1')


=> 1

...I'm having troubles understanding this relationship (unless it's a
bug?) and it's making it very frustrating if I want to use the same
view to show a single or many records. I can get around it by using
the :conditions as stated above but should I have to? Using...


NoMethodError: undefined method `count'...blah blah

...seems to have the same issues.

Can anyone shed some light on this? Sorry if it's already been
covered somewhere else I didn't know how to exactly phrase my question
without having to read through a hundred posts.


Yes! does seem awkward to have to account for this in a separate way
especially when rails is so great in other ways. :slight_smile:

Thank you,
