Controller links and login form

Hello,

I currently have two workarounds in my rails app :

The first, and I think the most simple :
I'm unable to get links for controllers made with script/generate
controllers. I made an "index" controllers, and a "news" method in it.
I'd like to link_to like : <li><%= link_to 'News', news_index_path %></

but it don't work. What I'm missing here ?

The second : I have a form for players to login. I get a dangerous
glitch : it add user in database instead of logging.

Here's the code :

[login.html.erb]
<% form_for(@Player) do |f| %>
<%= f.error_messages %>
  <p>
    <%= f.text_field :name %>
  </p>
  <p>
    <%= f.text_field :password %>
  </p>
  <p>
  <%= f.submit "Login" %>
    </p>
  <% end %>

[login in index.html.erb]
def login
    if request.get?
      session[:current_user]=nil
      @Player = Player.new
    else
      @Player = Player.new(params[:player])
      #logged_in_user = @Player.try_to_login
      if logged_in_user
        session[:current_user]=logged_in_user
      else
        flash[:notice] = "Utilisateur invalide"
    end
  end
  end

[methods in player's model]
def self.login (name, password)
    find(:first, :conditions => ["name = ? and password = ?", name,
password])
  end

  def try_to_loggin
    Player.login(self.name, self.password)
  end

Once again, what I'm missing here ?

Any help is apprecied.

Thanks !

Hello,

I currently have two workarounds in my rails app :

The first, and I think the most simple :

I’m unable to get links for controllers made with script/generate

controllers. I made an “index” controllers, and a “news” method in it.

I’d like to link_to like :

  • <%= link_to ‘News’, news_index_path %></

    but it don’t work. What I’m missing here ?

  • What does your routes.rb file look like? In order to get named routes (such as “news_index_path”) you would need to have something in your routes file that looks like:

    ActionController::Routing::Routes.draw do |map|

    map.news_index ‘index/news’ :controller => :index, :action => :news
    end

    Note also, that the latest fashion in RoR is to follow the conventions implied by RESTful routing. Under these conventions (which are just conventions, not rules), you would probably want to name your controller “news” and the default action (which is a Rails convention, not just RESTful convention) is the “index” action.

    I’m not sure how to answer the rest of your questions, but I hope this helped a little bit.
