after doing a bunch of reading I have finally sat down to create a
simple app to dirve home a lor of the concepts to which have been read.
So I figured a simple blog app is the best way to do it. The bad
thing is that I am already hung up when creating replies to a blog
I can't figure out how to insert the post_id value into the reply
table. When creating a reply the user is directed to a page via a url
simular to the following http://localhost:3000/main/reply/4, with the
value 4 being the post_id that is being replied to.
In the controller I have:
class MainController < ApplicationController
#display a list of the posts
@posts = Post.find(:all, :order => "id desc")
#display the post that is being replied to
@post = Post.find(params[:id])
@reply = Reply.new
@reply = Reply.find(params[:id])
