I currently am using acts as tree for building site navigation. When a
new page is added to the site, a select option with the include blank
option gets populated to determine the correct parent for the new
page. I would like the blank option to be set to 0 for root status.
I tried creating a quick test in the controller to see if the
params[:parent_id] is nil and then assigning a 0 to it but it did not
work. Can anyone offer any help with this?
