Hello. I am a beginner.
I wanna make a route like this:
With 3 params, so I can retrieve a PDF in a URL like:
I have 2 problems...
1. It seems I can't put more than 1 param between the slashes
The route /document/:language/:month/:year.pdf works fine. Because I
have each params isolated...
2. It seems that the "-" cannot be used in the route. Is it true? Is
there a workaround?
I think so.
You can come close
then in the controller parse the single permalink parameter however you wish.
I used the name permalink since this is a general term for a human
if the only thing you need is a nicer url you can override the
to_params method in the model.
I tried this. It works but only with underscores, but it doesn't work
it should, i used something like that (i mean with '-')
did you keep the numeric id at the beginning of the to_params?
you can search for Document.find(params[:id]) at usual because params
[:id] is passed through to_i
"43-en-2008-04.pdf".to_i == 43
