I have this in my routes.rb:
map.root :controller => "events", :action => :index
Surely enough, accessing http://localhost:3000/ renders the
events/index.html.erb template. However, accessing
http://localhost:3000/events renders the same page/template slightly
different, as the controller logic (EventsController#index) loads some
objects that's not available at "/". Apparently the root route doesn't
run the controller logic at all - it only renders the template.
Is there something wrong here, or am I the one with wrong expectations?
How can I fix it?
