Can partials be accessed from two views?

For me to keep my application DRY i need to be able to have partials
that can be accessed from two views. How is would I go about doing this?

render :partial => "folder/partial_file"
That should be enough.

Further, you should strive to make all your partials accessible like
this, by using :locals in the render and in the partial expecting
variable, not @variable, if that makes sense.
