I'm struggleing in the early stages of learning RoR. I'm playing around with a simple blog format. I'm already stuck.
What I am trying to do is iterate over the titles of articles in my database, and list them. The article table has rows id, link, title, content. "Link" is actually what I would be using, incase I had a title that I thought was too long to make into a link, I would put a shorter version into the "link" row.
I imagine it must be something along the lines of :
<ul> <% for link in Article.link_columns %> <li><%=h article.send(link.name) %></li> <% end %> </ul>
Of course, a: that doesn't work, and b: that wouldn't generate clickable links, but it's all I have at the moment.
