I am new to RoR, coming from an ASP.NET background. I’m currently working on a politically-themed social network, and I want to have multiple bloggers who will blog about various topics. My web host offers several PHP-based blogging engines, and I like WordPress, so I am trying to set it up with a subdomain such as blogs.mydomain.com/blog_name. However, I’m getting Rails errors because the URL uses the same conventions as Rails, and it’s trying to interpret it as a Rails application, so it’s not finding a controller or view.
Is there any way that I can tell Rails NOT to try and parse these URLs? I mean, I could easily just tack on index.php to the URL, and it seems to work properly, but I’m sure I won’t always remember it, and I doubt the bloggers will, either (I want to give them some degree of autonomy with their blogs).
Can anyone provide suggestions?
