    Building a Dynamic Site At the core, most database driven

    web sites are the same. They need to store records and provide a way to do the following: • Create new records in the database • Read or show the records in the database • Update existing records • Destroy or delete records Because these 4 actions are so common, Rails includes the scaffold command to make creating them easier. rails generate scaffold Confession title:string body:text
