Making display options sort

Quoting Ryan Ororie <rails-mailing-list@andreas-s.net>:

I'm doing some editing on an existing rails app and this view;
_tour_listing.html.erb looks like this:

[snip]

My question is with the render :partial => etc... line. I need to find
away to sort the data that is getting spit out by a specific field, how
would I do that?

Sort it in the controller or model, wherever the find() is. Often:

@upcoming_tour_requests = TourRequests.find(:all, :order => 'date')

Anything SQL accepts can go in the :order value, 'date DESC', 'id', etc.

Another point, blank? is for strings, empty? is standard Ruby for arrays.

HTH,
