FindByParam =========== Find_by_param helps you dealing with permalinks and finding objects by our permalink value class Post < ActiveRecord:Base make_permalink :with => :title end now you can do Post.find_by_param(...) If you have a permalink-column find_by_param saves the permalink there and uses that otherwise it just uses the provided attribute. Example =========== Post.create(:title => "hey ho let's go!").to_param #=> "hey-ho-lets-go" (to_param is the method Rails calls to create the URL values) Post.find_by_param("hey-ho-lets-go") #=> <Post> Post.find_by_param("is-not-there") #=> nil Post.find_by_param!("is-not-there") #=> raises ActiveRecord::RecordNotFound examples: make_permalink :with => :login make_permalink :with => :title, :prepend_id=>true options for make_permalink: :with: (required) The attribute that should be used as permalink :field: The name of your permalink column. make_permalink first checks if there is a column. :prepend_id: [true|false] Do you want to prepend the ID to the permalink? for URLs like: posts/123-my-post-title - find_by_param uses the ID column to search. :escape: [true|false] Do you want to escape the permalink value? (strip chars like öä?&?) - actually you must do that Issues ======= * Alex Sharp (http://github.com/ajsharp) pointed to an issue with STI. Better call make_permalink in every child class and not only in the parent class.. * write nice docs * write nicer tests Copyright (c) 2007 [Michael Bumann - Railslove.com], released under the MIT license
