This is thankfully the beginner's section because this is probably a really dumb question
What exactly does this plugin do? The documentation basically just says:
Setting the url name
The usage that will work for 80% of cases is this:class Article < ActiveRecord::Base
This will format the value of the title attribute of the record to one suitable for use in a URL and save it.
I assumed this meant it would allow a URL like this
Where "my_name" comes from a property on the Model that had acts_as_urlnameable applied to it. Like if we were making a forum and we wanted to look at one member's profile, the url could become "/profile/view/bob", replacing User.id with User.name -- which looks really nice.
But I installed the plugin and played with it, and I couldn't get it to do anything. If it doesn't do what I assumed it does, is there a plugin that does?
