That's normally what you want. Use RESTful routes unless there's a good

Heres a good reason ..they wern't working
Not a good reason. If you're going to learn to use Rails, learn to
*use* it, not kludge around it. Rails' routing is a bit complex, but
well worth learning how to use.
and it messes with URL routing or some thing ...
No, it's just a shorthand for defining certain routes. Read the docs
I read the docs for 3 hours and 2 diferent reference books.. not one
told me that adding a map.resource :(controller) to routes would make it
so you couldn't use the URL to navigate.
Because that isn't the case as such. You have to understand routing a
little better, I'd say.
Why would I use restful if I have no clue how to use restful?
Because you want to learn, maybe? If you don't want to learn, why are
you asking questions?
Deleted it from routes file and can navigate manually threw views...
Particularly since you seem to be a beginner, I'd advise starting with
Way to call out the obvous , what a nice thing to do
I wanted to check, not assume. Sorry for trying to be nice.
RESTful routes and naming your controller actions accordingly. Judging
from your earlier post, your controller actions have strange names.
Who asked for your opinion on naming conventions?
Routing is about naming conventions. If you don't want advice, don't
ask for it.
Change them to use RESTful style as much as possible.
Telling some one to change them to restful style; when its apparent
they don't know what restful is, isn't saying any thing at all.
It was not clear to me that you didn't know. Anyway, this is a perfect
opportunity to ask more questions or do independent research. It is not
a perfect opportunity to insult those who are trying to help.
(Oh, and you misspelled "login"...)
No I spelt user_loggin exactly the way I wanted to, but you just had
to point it out yes?
I thought you might not want spelling errors in your code. Silly me.
Not weird at all. Read the Rails routing guide and docs.
I really don't understand why you responded to my post at all,
Because I saw you going down the wrong path and I thought I could help.
Now ask yourself: I gave you some advice that was apparently not clear
to you. Why did *you* bother to respond at all if it was just to
complain that I didn't spell everything out for you? Do you really
think people on this list will want to help you out if you come here
with that kind of attitude?
never have any thing positive to say on any of your forum replies and
you constantly interject your own opinion on matters that were never
asked to be addressed.
I give answers and point out problems as I see them. That's what a
forum like this is for.
And it seems to me that you rarley provide any one with any actual
useful information...Go read the manual!!!?? Go read the book!? who
needs that type of advice?...
People who don't read the manual before posting. And on the evidence,
there are lots of them.
For example earlyer this week I asked about downloading
rest_authentication becuase I could not get the process to work ... did
you reply with some useful help on how to grab plugins on a windows OS?
No! you told me don't bother with restful_authentication it sucks..and
windows sucks... which whether correct or not has nothing to do with how
to properly down load restful_aunthentication on a windows xp platform.
I told you you were making bad decisions, because you were. I also told
you how to fix the problem you were having. If you chose to ignore my
solution, don't blame me.
And thats what I asked for help with if I can't figure out how to
download restful_authentication, you think I can just go and magicly
download what ever alternitive plugin you suggested.
Because you can! The Rails plugin installation process is uniform. If
you can install one plugin, you can install them all.

Look dude ..no one helped me with this problem..I did figure it out on
my own, by googling and reading and googling and reading ... books and
doc's and I replied to my own question incase some one else accidently
messed with the routing file like I did.
All your response was, was a snobish trashing of my question and my own
I wasn't trashing anything. I was trying to explain how to do things
better. I assumed that since you were trying to learn Rails, you
actually wanted to learn to do things right. Was I mistaken? Did you
just want your ego stroked? Or something else? I really don't get it.
do me a favor ..ignore my questions...
That wouldn't be doing you a favor. But I might do it anyway if you
don't lose that attitude.
