Topic: custom urls from values in db

Hello, I have seen a couple of rails tutorials that show how to build a simple cms.
One cms feature that I have not yet seen explained is how to allow custom urls to be input by the cms admin.
I know how to give a page any name by putting it in the routes.rb file, but most cms's I have seen allow the admin to generate a page's url by adding the name in a form field when creating the page.
Is it possible to have this functionality in Rails by having the routes.rb file pull a value from the database to use as the url?

Re: custom urls from values in db

You can do this pretty easily, in may ways,  but it won't involve messing with routes.rb file so much,  you'll likely need to tweak it,  but the bulk of the work will be elsewhere.
