Who is this PR for?

K8 educators with homeroom access

What problem does this PR fix?

This has bitten us twice before: #2022 and #2155. Another case came up again verifying #2584.

In this case, there was a collision between id and slug spaces for homerooms, which caused the navbar link to be generated with a slug, but be interpreted as if it were an id in the controller lookup code.

What does this PR do?

Removes /homerooms/:slug and only generates and supports /homerooms/:id. There's still a footgun here because the url_helpers.homeroom_path(homeroom) will use slug, but that's for another day. Verifying #2584 is more important, and this bug makes that more complicated.


Which features or pages does this PR touch?

  • Navbar links
  • Homeroom

Does this PR use tests to help verify we can deploy these changes quickly and confidently?

  • Included specs for changes
  • Improved specs for existing code in need of better test coverage
  • Manual testing made more sense here
