How do I check if a model inside a model has been liked?
Hello there! I implemented likes to my app using this tutorial https://gorails.com/episodes/liking-posts. I went a little bit different route though. I have PollItem < Poll. Poll has_many :poll_items and only poll_items can be liked.
How do I check if a poll item has been liked within the polls model so that only one of it can be liked.. The plan is to hide the like button once the check is true.
Assuming your poll_items are scoped to your polls and your likes are scoped to your poll_items you can scope your likes to your polls by adding the following to your polls model:
has_many :likes, through :poll_items
then this will work as expected:
Hope that helps!
