ActsAsComplexParam

Generates the to_param method a long with a find_by_param! method to convert back and forth from URL param to database attributes.

Usage

To setup the methods write the following in you model:

acts_as_param(:id, :title)

Assuming you want to construct the param from the id and title attributes. By default a hyphen (-) is inserted between the attributes as a separator.

Options

You can specify another separator in an options hash when defining the param:

acts_as_param(:number, :name, :separator => '_')
