Controllers and form_for

I'm a bit confused on how this works. My form is sending to a weird
location. Here's my situation:

I have a model: youtube.rb
I have a controller called: youtube_editor_controller.rb

In my youtube_editor view, i have new.html.erb, where I'm trying to
make a form for the var I created in my youtube_editor_controller.rb:

  def new
  @video_new = Youtube.new
  end

SO, I use the form_for @video_new, but when I view the page, the form
action="/youtubes". Why is it doing that? Did I define "youtubes" or
is it just pluralizing my model name? Where does it decide which
controller to go to?

that comes from your routes.

OK, I have this in my routes:

  map.resources :youtube_editor
  map.resources :youtubes

I deleted youtubes and I got an error. (I think "youtube" is my model
name, but "youtubes" may be my table name. "youtube_editor" is my
controller. How do I get the resource youtube_editor linked to the
@video_new variable? (if that's how it works...)

THanks!

you'll make life easier for yourself if you stick to the default (ie
the controller for editing instances of Youtube should be
youtubes_controller). You should be able to the :controller option to
override that if you want.

So, models and controllers should always have the same name?
