layouts inheritance in controllers

Reported by Elben Shira | March 15th, 2011 @ 08:14 PM

I have a snippet:

class ProjectsController < ApplicationController
  layout "stream", :only => [:stream]

When I render projects#stream, it correctly uses the :stream layout. But when I render projects#show, it uses neither the :application nor the :stream layouts. It uses nothing, rending only show.html.erb.

    You can use conditions for layouts, just give layouts a name of method to calculate current layout

    class ProjectsController < ApplicationController

    layout :get_layout_name
    def get_layout_name
       if action_name == "stream"


    This way you will get your layouts working correctly
