Create the public area of the website. The public area will have a different controller and view layout, and it will not require user authentication. There will only be two actions: index will display the default page, show will use the permalink provided in the URL to look up a page of content.
- [Instructor] By now we have a good admin area started.…Let's shift our focus to the public side…of our content management system…where visitors to our site will view the site content…that we enter in the admin area.…Here's our plan.…First, we're gonna have a publicController,…and then publicController's gonna have a new layout…which is gonna be called public.…It's gonna look very similar to what we have…for the admin area as well.…But the publicController is gonna require…no user authentication.…It's going to have an index action,…and that's just gonna have a template which contains…some introductory text.…
We'll also make this the default route for the site.…So if you just come to the website for the first time,…that's where you're gonna be sent.…And then we'll have a show action.…We wanna generate a route so that going to show…and then some page's permalink will take you directly…to that page.…Note that the controller isn't being included.…This is a simple match route.…It's gonna match on the text show followed by the permalink.…
