    It's a dispatcher, like what filburt'll be doing for WDFv6. Basically all URIs are sent through it, and it handles determining where things go how.

    What do you mean, tuts on altering design? What design do you want to alter?

    It's also worth it to start familiarizing yourself with plugins that are currently available. There are *many*, and each one makes your life a little easier by implementing functionality you can use, typically in an incredibly easy way. Some to keep in mind include restful_authentication, the authenticate plugin, ujs4rails, attachment_fu, and bunches of others. Shameless plug: magic_fields is a plugin I've developed for DRYing up form helpers. Keep in mind that DRY is a driving principle behind Rails!

    I meant design as in the browser output. It was a bit of a poorly thought out question as the tutorial I linked explained it (a bit) soon after. It does confuse me at the moment, and the way things are coded is daunting (I guess it's a lot more efficient than just shoving everything into one file like with PHP, even if that's not something you're forced to do).

    I'm reading up and going to put some effort into learning this properly, so I'll be looking into anything that makes life easier! Anything that makes JavaScript less of a bother is welcome in my books.

    Cool :-) Also, this is, as I've said before, one of the few places where I definitely recommend a book -- Agile Web Development with Rails is quite excellent, and goes both the tutorial and the reference route. Definitely a must-have for learning Rails.

    Learning Ruby +1 (http://www.ruby-doc.org/docs/ProgrammingRuby/ is for version 1.8, but it's what I read first and still find it very useful).
