#309 ✓wontfix

params['path_info'] returns parsed array instead of string

Reported by peter123 | June 3rd, 2008 @ 01:44 AM

Say you have a route defined in routes.rb:

map.connect '/:p1/*path_info', :controller => 'user', :action => 'take_action'

And you hit the app with this url:

The controller will return params['path_info'] as ["1", "2", "3", "4] instead of "1/2/3/4" as in previous versions of rails.

    • State changed from “new” to “wontfix”
    • Tag set to route

    From the CHANGELOG

    "The @params[:path_info] return is really an array, but where to_s has been overwritten to do join("/")."
