How do I create my homepage subdomain ('www')
I followed the tutorial for subdomain from scratch and got " redirect_to root_url(subdomain: "www") if @account.nil? " but I don't know how to get to manage it as a homepage like home#index.
I wondered if I wouldn't have to change something about " before_action :set_account " in application_controller.rb
thank you in advance
It's usually easiest to set that up in your routes file. You can setup a subdomain constraint so that when the subdomain is www or nil, you can render the homepage. Otherwise when there's a subdomain, you can send it to the account controller.
You can put this in
class AccountSubdomain def self.matches? request # www and no subdomain are excluded and don't count as account subdomains # You can add any more subdomains to this array to have them ignored. !["www", nil].include? request.subdomain end end
config/routes.rb file can use this to set the constraints:
Rails.application.routes.draw do # Account routes constraints(AccountSubdomain) do root to: "account#index" end root to: "home#index" end
Thank you but I get an error
uninitialized constant AccountSubdomain
Is it normal that I had to create the directory lib/ in the app/ folder ?
Sorry in fact I just had to restart the server and now it works perfectly thank you so much...
I only have a last issue which is that when I'm in a subdomain and I get to 'home', the subdomain still appear in the url whereas I want 'www' or nil.. :s
I get 'example.domain.com/home' instead of 'domain.com/home' or 'www.domain.com/home'
You can pass
subdomain: nil into your url helpers to change the subdomain. Something like
link_to home_url(subdomain: nil)
Thank you again this is perfectly what I needed. You're the best teacher I could ever dream of but I hope I don't bother you so much with my issues... By the way I think I would be interested in your hosting service but I'll ask you about it later, now is not the time. Hope you're having a good day :)
