I’ve recently migrated my application to Rails 3, and I encounter problems with the new system of SQL-caching.
I have a ‘category’ action on my PostsController that I access through a standard :controller/:action/:id route (www.my_app.net/posts/category/something), and runs a query to find posts tagged with my parameter using the plugin acts_as_taggable_on_steroids : @posts = Post.find_tagged_with(params[:id])
When I restart the server, the query looks like this in my logs :
Post Load (0.2ms) SELECT DISTINCT medias.* FROM
medias INNER JOIN taggings medias_taggings ON medias_taggings.taggable_id = medias.id AND medias_taggings.taggable_type = ‘Media’ INNER JOIN tags medias_tags ON medias_tags.id = medias_taggings.tag_id WHERE
type IN (‘Post’) AND ((medias_tags.name LIKE ‘something’))
… which is perfectly correct.
But when I actualize the page, the query is loaded from cache without its parameters and looks like this in the logs :
Post Load (0.7ms) SELECT
type IN (‘Post’)
… so I get many results that aren’t correct.
I’ve seen people getting around this problem with the ‘uncached’ block :
@posts = Post.find_tagged_with(params[:id])
This solution doesn’t work on my application, I still get the correct result only on the first page load. I even tried to force the query by calling Rails.logger.debug @posts inside the block, to no avail.
I’ve read that appending ‘.all’ to the call can force the query too, but find_tagged_with returns an Array, not a Relation, and ‘.all’ isn’t defined on Arrays.
What am i missing ? Don’t hesitate to ask if I’m unclear, as I’m not a native English speaker.
Thank you for your help
