map.resrouces without create or new action?

Hi

Is there a way to use
map.resources
in routes for a controller, but without including the create or new actions?

Cheers

Hey Daniel,

As far as I understand it, all you have to do is not define the create
and new action in your controller.

If those actions are not defined in the controller AND there are no
"new.rhtml" and "create.rhtml" in the views folder, I think it will
behave like you want to.

I guess it is the nasty Error page that I’m looking to avoid. Thanx for the idea.

Couldn't you just use a before_filter to redirect to ether a nice
clean error page or even just use the index action instead?

before_filter :show_error, :only => [:new, :create]

def show_error
  redirect_to plural_path()
end

Really what I was thinking was to not define routes for non-existant
actions. But if I can’t turn some of them off then something like
redirection or a nice error will be sufficient.

Cheers
