redirect in routes.rb

Best solution I’ve found is to use a catchall route glob at the end of my routes and use that method to test for certain conditions, like this…

[routes.rb]

map.with_options :controller => “application” do |m|

map.index “/”, :action => “index”
map.page “/:url”, :action => “page”
map.catcher “/*whatever”, :action => “catcher”
end

[application.rb
]

index and page as normal

def catcher

Test params[:whatever] for what you might want to redirect specifically

Remember it’s an Array though.

if params[:whatever][0] == “whatever”

# Whatever...

else
# Something else…
end
end

Hope that helps.
