Does the option :host work in link_to?


I used the following code line in a View file on machine <%= link_to "GoToAnotherHost", { :protocol => "http", :host => "", :controller => "admin", :action => "list" } %> However the result is: the link "GoToAnotherHost" is always pointed to rather than I.e., the :host doesn't take effect at all! What's wrong with this? Do you meet the same problem?

Many Thanks! Shiwei

use :only_path and the procotol like "http://" (see below) not what one would expect, but its mentioned in the manual.

    <%= link_to "GoToAnotherHost",     {       :only_path => false,       :protocol => "http://",       :host => "",       :controller => "admin",       :action => "list"     }     %>

You should be able to link_to a string rather than a hash. Since routes vary from site to site the hash would be risky in any event.
