Link to a method in my model

Simon P asked in Rails


I have a method called Search(search) in my model which is called from my controller. This works fine when I enter a search term in an input box in my view.

What I now want to do is create a link for a preset search term that pass the preset search term to the method.

Something like:

<%= link_to "Search Term", articles_search_path("Search Term") %>

How should this link look and what do I need in my controller to pass this to my model?




Fresh start to a new days and nailed this myself:

<%= link_to "Search Term", articles_path(search: "Search Term")
