params and attributes confusion. Maybe my routes? I included my code and log snips.

hi all,

I am using Ruby 1.8.4 and Rails 1.2.1 recently updated in the middle of my app development.

The controller I have to explicitly set the action “view” shouldn’t that be automatic since I have a view.rhtml file?

for some reason the code I have in the view never get’s displayed. I have listed my methods and the error I am getting in my logs. Maybe I am overseeing something or just flat out doing something wrong. Any help would be appreciated.

–Post Model–
def self.find_all_by_slug(slug)
Post.find(:all, :conditions => [“slug = ?”, slug])

def view
@post = Post.find_all_by_slug
render_action “view”


map.connect “posts/:year/:month/:day”,
:controller => “blog”,
:action => “find_by_date”,

        :requirements => { :year => /(19|20)\d\d/,
                            :month => /[01]?\d/,
                            :day => /[0-3]?\d/},
        :day => nil,
        :month => nil,

        :slug => ''

map.connect “posts/view/:slug”


<% for p in @post %>

<%= p.title %>

<%= p.text_html %> <% end %>

–log file–

i see that the slug is NULL in the sql query, I don’t know why in this case the slug “First-Post” is being assigned to id. I am guessing this is all part of my problems.
