Nested resources

Reported by Stuart Johnston | December 10th, 2008 @ 07:58 AM

First and foremost... awesome plugin!

Spotted this...

If I'm using nested routes:

map.resources :activities do |activities|
    activities.resources :risks, :controller => "/activities/risks"

The wrong links are generated by order_by_link, per_page_select and page_select (and I presume the others).

The following:

order_by_link :name



which generates an error. It should render something more like.


Is there a way to get it to use nested resources by passing in the appropriate object as can be done for form_for?

    My error.

    My route should have been:

    map.resources :activities do |activities|
        activities.resources :risks, :controller => "activities/risks"

    The change is removing the first "/" from :controller => "activities/risks"

    Hi Stuart,

    Well, all that searchlogic does is create parameters and pass them to link_to. For example, behind the scenes all that it is really doing is:

    link_to "Name", :search => {:order_by => :name}

    I'm assuming link_to delegates parameters to url_for and shouldn't url_for build the url as it is?

    Let me know if this is still an issue. I'm gonna put this on hold for now.
