How to render normal rhtml page without active record?

hi all, I'm very new to RoR and need some help over here.

from what i learnt from the tutorials, I understand that it's very
easy to create, update, update, and delete data to and from the DB and
load everything to the 'view' rhtml pages. but now i'm confused when i
only want to load a normal home page that will not access any data
from the DB. must I create the active record as well?

any suggestion is appreciated.

wow, thx for the reply. i guess it gives me some enlightment. yes, i
was referring to some kind of index or home page. i will try it once i
reach home. may need further help later on. :slight_smile:
