[PLUGIN RELEASE] ActsAsSeoFriendly


ActsAsSeoFriendly

== DESCRIPTION:

Create an SEO friendly field for a model automatically based on a given field.

So if you have a Blogs model, and you would like create an SEO friendly version
of the ‘title’ field, you would just add this to your model and then be able to
use the SEO friendly id as the unique id to the resource. The plugin will only
append an integer to the SEO id if there is a collision.


== SYNOPSIS:

Create seo column migration:


class CreateSeoTestModels < ActiveRecord::Migration
def self.up
create_table :seo_test_models do |t|
t.string :name
t.timestamps
end
SeoTestModel.create_seo_friendly_column()
end

def self.down
SeoTestModel.drop_seo_friendly_column()
drop_table :seo_test_models
end
end

Add to model:


class SeoTestModel < ActiveRecord::Base
acts_as_seo_friendly :resource_id => :name,
:seo_friendly_id_field => :seo_id, # default is :seo_friendly_id
:seo_friendly_id_limit => 100 # default is 50
end

To lookup the resource in the controllers use:


SeoTestModel.find_by_seo_id(params[:id])
