Proper Rails Routing is Very Rewarding

Redirects work easily in Rails. Modify the routes.rb file and the application can process it’s own redirects without messing with the server’s config files. This is handy for situations like my [wife’s business website](http://redbeedesigns.com) where her old content and URLs need to be preserved while the new stuff is being built.

Example: http://redbeedesigns.com/about and http://redbeedesigns.com/about.html look the same because the are exactly the same content generated exactly the same way.

Again, nothing new to a profession web developer, but gratifying nonetheless.

Tonight, time permitting, we’ll do some database work with the “[shop](http://redbeedesigns.com/shop)” page.
