conditional layout question ? sidebar visible on all pages except the login page.

Hello,

Allmost all pages have the same layout except the login page.

There the sidebar with menu is not visible.

Is there a way to tell rails that when im on the login page the sidebar must not be visible.

Roelof

you could use current_page with route to check the page. Ex:
render “sidebar” unless current_page?(login_path)

Matt

oke , and put this in the controller ??

Roelof

No, the render command goes in your layout in this case since it is something that a lot of your views are using.

<%= render “sidebar” unless current_page?(login_path) %>

``

Sorry but I do not work. I see a message that login_path is not known. I think that devise is messing things up.

Roelof

You have to look in your routes file what is your login_path.
login_path is just a example.

run “rake routes” in cosole to see your login path.

Rake routes :

Prefix Verb URI Pattern Controller#Action

new_admin_session GET /admins/sign_in(.:format) devise/sessions#new

admin_session POST /admins/sign_in(.:format) devise/sessions#create

destroy_admin_session DELETE /admins/sign_out(.:format) devise/sessions#destroy

cancel_admin_registration GET /admins/cancel(.:format) devise/registrations#cancel

admin_registration POST /admins(.:format) devise/registrations#create

new_admin_registration GET /admins/sign_up(.:format) devise/registrations#new

edit_admin_registration GET /admins/edit(.:format) devise/registrations#edit

PATCH /admins(.:format) devise/registrations#update

PUT /admins(.:format) devise/registrations#update

DELETE /admins(.:format) devise/registrations#destroy

dashboard_show GET /dashboard/show(.:format) dashboard#show

root GET / dashboard#show

I tried already new_admin_registration but then I see the same error message.

Roelof

You still need _path. So in your case, since it is the login which I’m assuming is new_admin_session, it would be

<%= render “sidebar” unless current_page?(new_admin_session_path) %>

then I see this error message ;

undefined local variable or method `“sidebar”' for #<#<Class:0x007fc6a2ce9c38>:0x007fc6a50d7118>

Where I have a sidebar.html.erb and a _sidebar.html.erb in the same directory.

Roelof

Add the folder name where your sidebar partial is located.

<%= render “layouts/sidebar” unless current_page?(new_admin_session_path) %>

undefined local variable or method `“layouts' for #<#<Class:0x007f50394a0340>:0x007f503949ded8>

Roelof

undefined local variable or method `“layouts' for
#<#<Class:0x007f50394a0340>:0x007f503949ded8>

Show us the line of code that error is generated on (with a couple of
lines each side). Copy/paste it here.

Here is the whole layout :

Liberator Admin Theme
 <%= stylesheet_link_tag "bootstrap/bootstrap.css", "font-awesome-4.0.3/css/font-awesome.min.css", "jquery-ui.css", "toastr.css", "style.css" %>

<%= render “layouts/sidebar” unless current_page?(new_admin_session_path) %>

The sidebar.html.erb can be found here : http://pastebin.com/4HJ69Pa7

Roelof

Look at the stack trace and find which line of your code generated the
error, then post just that section.

Colin

I think you mean this :

Processing by DashboardController#show as HTML

Rendered dashboard/show.html.erb within layouts/application (2.1ms)

Rendered dashboard/show.html.erb within layouts/application (2.1ms)

Or do you mean the application.stack, framework trace or the whole trace.
I see the error when doing rails s

What in the name of all that's merciful are you using as an editor?

Look *closely* at the error message.

You're using "smart" (sic) quotes instead of normal double-quote
characters. Fix that and it'll work as expected.

Thanks,

Im using the ide of nitrious.io but this is the next problem that arise with wrong characters.

I think I will look for a decent Linux distro and look then for a solution where I can have all the files at one window. my code in another and a terminal as a footer.

Roelof

Well spotted Hassan. Isn't it annoying when someone sees something
that one should have seen oneself :slight_smile:
Particularly when I am always telling people to look at the error message.
