docs/associations.html should have more docs about :through

Reported by Jeremy Nicoll | August 8th, 2008 @ 01:23 PM

In the model that is the target of the :through, it is important that it has the belongs_to for the two other tables. For example:

class User

has n, :user_categories

has n, :categories, :through => :user_categories

end

class UserCategory

belongs_to :user

belongs_to :category

end

This may not be obvious to everyone and I feel it would be beneficial to have this on the docs page for associations.
