how to create routes for user

I have a user. They have could have many products

The typical link in rails would be
www.somesite.com/controller/action/id

what I want is it to look like

www.somesite.com/user_name/product_name

How can I do this using routes.rb

Thank

you can use

match “/:user_name/:product_name” => “products#show”

but be sure to place this at the bottom of your routes file so it will match if not any other routes match.

one big problem i’m seeing with this approach is if a user’s name is the same as one of your controllers.

so you have to consider that.

You might want to look at friendly_id, that's right up its alley.
