ActionView::Base
  • Object

Defined in:
app/models/cms/view_context.rb

Overview

Trying to get rendering working:

Things that need to happen:

  1. Need to add all helpers from that the Cms::ContentController has access to:

  2. Add helpers for the portlet or content block

Understanding how Cms::ContentController renders a template:

  1. It starts with a layout, which is a CMS template.

  2. show.html.erb is called, which iterates over the connectables, adding content_for for each of the yields.

TODOS There are currently way to many values getting copied into this view, including:

content_block (desired) - From ContentController
content - An attribute of the block itself.
