Unanswered: Routes misunderstanding.
Here is my use case, when a specific route ( 'biscuitlocator' ) is triggered, I need 2 controllers to perform certain actions to their respective views. However, this isn't working in my application as the url changes but the view doesn't. If I comment out one route in a controller but not the other it works and hits my route dependent code, but it doesn't work when I have 'biscuitlocator' in both controllers.
I was thinking I had a misunderstanding about routes and how they work with the various controllers of the application.
Any help is greatly appreciated.

You will need to daisy chain the controller methods. Have only one route and in that handler execute a method in the other controller via:
var controller = this.getController('secondcontroller') controller.someFn.apply(controller, arguments);Mitchell Simoens @LikelyMitch

When you say use an abstract controller, do you mean have a controller that is the parent class of all of my controllers and contains all the routes, so each one can respond ?
