Edge Rails Resource Routing Problems

Hi there, I’m having a problem with the named url helpers the resource mapper in routes.rb produces.

I have a model where a Vendor has_many Categories.

So I setup routing like so:
map.resources :vendors do |vendor|

vendor.resources :categories, :name_prefix => "vendor_"

end

This should provide me with…
vendor_category_path
vendor_edit_category_path
and vendor_new_category_path

But when I attempt to use those very helpers, I get this error:

ActionView::TemplateError (vendor_edit_category_url failed to generate from {:action=>“edit”, :controller=>“categories”, :vendor_id=>“1”}, expected: {:action=>“edit”, :controller=>“categories”}, diff: {:vendor_id=>“1”}) on line #12 of app/views/categories/index.rhtml:

9:


10: <%= link_to category.name, vendor_category_path(category) %>
11: <%= link_to ‘Show’, vendor_category_path(category) %>

12:

<%= link_to ‘Edit’, vendor_edit_category_path(category) %>
13: <%= link_to ‘Destroy’, vendor_category_path(category), :confirm => ‘Are you sure?’, :method => :delete %>

14:


15: <% end %>

Am I misunderstanding something or is this bit of code still a work in progress in Edge rails as far as nested resources are concerned? What can I do in the meantime to vendor_edit_category_url that it should be expecting a vendor_id in the mix?

Here’s a snippet of my view:
and in the view:

<% for category in @categories %>

<%= link_to [category.name](http://category.name), vendor_category_path(category) %>
<td><%= link_to 'Show', vendor_category_path(category) %></td>
<td><%= link_to 'Edit', vendor_edit_category_path(category) %></td>
<td><%= link_to 'Destroy', vendor_category_path(category), :confirm => 'Are you sure?', :method => :delete %></td>
<% end %>

Any help is much appreciated! Thanks.

D. Taylor,

I believe your edit url should be:

vendor_edit_category_path(@vendor, @category)

You need to pass in the parent id as well.
