Help with routes and params

Hi John,

I highly suggest you take a peek as the associations that Rails
provides. A good place to start is the Rails Guides.
http://guides.rubyonrails.org/association_basics.html
and also the guide on routes (particularly the part on nested
resources)
http://guides.rubyonrails.org/routing_outside_in.html
These will make life much easier for you if you follow them.

Sorry for not really answering your question... :slight_smile:

Again, I would go this route though. :slight_smile:

I think you have to have a look at Rails basics. A basic forum would
be something like:

forums has_many categories
categories has_many topics
topics has_many replies

then you have has_many routes like /forums/1/categories/1/topic and in
your routes.rb you would do

map.resources :forums do |forum|
  forum.resources :categories do |cat|
    cat.resources :topics
  end
end

You could add :has_many => :topics but if you need members and/or
collections later its better this way.
