Rails3-Forums-Without-Nesting

A simple forum application written using Rails 3 Seth Holloway (www.sethholloway.com)

This example differs from the Rails3-forum project by cutting out extra routes. This application has only forums/id/topics/id, while the previous example had forums/id/topics/id and topics/id.

What it does

This forum application contains forums, topics, and comments. Forums are high-level classifications; topics are threads within a specific forum and comments create the topic.

Getting it running

Clone the git repository

Limitations

  • No authentication or authorization ** An admin? method simply returns true
  • There is no error checking
  • The code has not been thoroughly tested.
  • Lacking style and JavaScript goodness.
  • No fancy nesting or @replies like those provided by Disqus or other modern commenting systems.
