I have everything working fine, except one minor detail.
My Rails site is up, and you can access is via:
in the usual way. If you surf to:
I would like to redirect to
so that the user sees the path which is consistent for the rest of the site.
I am flummoxed on how to do this - I have tried altering the .htacess file, but have not been able to figure out a way to do this.
One idea was to put in a 301 redirect rule into my .htaccess file, but I was unable to come up with a way to do this. The following is kinda what I want, but it's wrong:
RewriteRule ^\/$ controller/action [QSA]
I don't understand this syntax well enough.
The other thing that I tried was to play with the routes:
map.connect '', :controller => 'controller', :action => 'my_action'
and then do a Rails 'redirect_to' in the "my_action" method of the controller. This doesn't work as well.
Any ideas on how to do this?
