Posted in Add Profile page for users

Alright, so i had a look at friendly_id
and i guess this pretty much solves the problem for me. Even though while i am implementing friendly_id i would highly appreciate any kind of feedback that i can get from you people here.

Posted in Add Profile page for users


Before i begin with my question, i would like to introduce myself. So i was introduced to ruby on rails via a friend around a couple of months back, when i decided to enroll myself with onemonth. Recently i was trying to create a profile page for the users based upon their username.
So the profile page should be http://www.example.com/john-doe
This is when i realized, what if a user decides to set their username as forum? I already got a controller named forum.
How can i let people have their own profile pages and at the same time avoid having them choose a name that already belongs to a controller.
