I am a bit of newbie and have a question:
Can you pass additional parameters to named restful routes that aren't
nested. For example if I have a named route
classroom_path(@classroom.id) can I also pass a topic.id or other
params without having to create nested resources?
Yes, I think so.
You have to just do something like:
classroom_path(:classroom_id => @classroom.id, :otherparam => topic.id)
Notice that classroom id has to be set also as an entry in the hash,
cause you cannot mix something like:
classroom_path(@classroom.id, :otherparam => topic.id)
Then in the controller you receive this, you just have to ask:
to get the topic.
