Currently my User model has has_many groups and the Group model has_many folders.
so is there any way to pulling all the folders like this. user.groups.folders?
Currently I have to loop like this and dump them in to array.
[code=] def user_folders user_folders = user_folders.push(self.folders.collect) self.groups.each do |group| user_folders.push(group.folders.collect) end user_folders = user_folders.flatten.uniq end [/code]
I get this error "ActiveRecord::HasManyThroughSourceAssociationMacroError: Invalid source reflection macro :has_many :through for has_many :group_folders, :through => :groups. Use :source to specify the source reflection."
User model [code=] has_many :permissions has_many :folders, :through => :permissions has_many :members has_many :groups, :through => :members has_many :group_folders, :through => :groups, :source => :folders [/code]
Group model [code=] has_many :members has_many :users, :through => :members has_many :permissions has_many :folders, :through => :permissions [/code]
So is there a easy way to pull user.groups.folders without looping through each group and saving folder in a array?
