Jeff, thank you for the feedback. This worked perfectly and achieved everything I needed. Thank you again.
Perfect, great advice guys! Thank you for the feedback! I wanted to use the rescue_from method but couldn't get it to work. I'll look more into it and spend more time on it. Thanks again guys.
Does anyone have any thoughts or why this might be a bad practice?
I am using the following code as the last route within my routes.rb
get "*path", to: redirect('/')
It seems to handle very well if someone navigates to a URL that isn't valid rather then displaying the default Rails "Routing Error".
I am wanting to know if there is a better method and if this is standard practice.
James, you are exactly correct. Thank you for the feedback and helping me.
Alright everyone, I would greatly appreciate your help solving this problem. Here is what I'm attempting to do; I have an articles controller and all the related views to create new article posts.
class ArticlesController < ApplicationController def index @articles = Article.all end def new @article = Article.new end def create @article = Article.new( title: params[:article][:title], body: params[:article][:body]) @article.save redirect_to article_path(@article) end def show @article = Article.find(params[:id]) end end
This controller works fine when I go to a form that was generate by the scaffolding. I can navigate to articles/new and then fill the form out for a new article and it posts perfectly. Here is my dilemma, I have a separate view and controller for an admin page, and I want to be able to copy the form from the articles/new view into that admin/index view. For some reason I am having an issue posting to another controller from a separate view. Can someone please shed light on this, after spending countless hours over this weekend, you can imaging how frustrating this is getting :rage:
<%= form_for @article do |f| %> <ul> <% @article.errors.full_messages.each do |error| %> <li><%= error %></li> <% end %> </ul> <p> <%= f.label :title %><br /> <%= f.text_field :title %> </p> <p> <%= f.label :body %><br /> <%= f.text_area :body %> </p> <p> <%= f.submit %> </p> <% end %>
class AdminController < ApplicationController def index render layout: "admin_layout" end end
The error sign that I am getting when I navigate to localhost:3000/admin/index is: First argument in form cannot contain nil or be empty
Any help I could get from you more experience would be amazing. Thank you a ton in advanced! :joy:
