Re: [PhillyOnRails] action aliases

Use routes. In your routes.rb file, you should add a line that looks like so:

map.connect '/mycontroller/add', :controller => 'mycontroller', :action => 'view'

Where mycontroller should be replaced with the name of your controller. And make sure to insert that above the default routes. You'll know the default routes because of the comment that describes them as such.

Hi everyone, I have a simple question, but I can't seem to find the answer.
I want to make an 'add' action that is simply an alias for the
'view' action, where all params get passed without enumerating
that list of params.  This might be more of a Ruby question than
Rails.  A template is probably better, but now I'm just curious
how to pass the params over cleanly.

def add
    redirect_to(:action => 'view') # how to pass params?

Any help is appreciated.  Thanks, -Chris
