A simple form

I’m a bit confused on how to write a simple form. But not a form_tag and
not using RESTful.

I would like to be able to design without RESTful design. I’ve used it a
bit but don’t see the point. It’s complicating things, at least for me.

form_tag is the way to do a simple form. What do you want to do
that form_tag does not do (or what does it do that you do not want it
to)? Are you confusing it with form_for?

Yes. How do I write it forms that is not RESTful? I mean not form_tag. I
still want to bind a form to an object. How do I write this in a
non-restful way?

<% form_for :article, @article, :url => { :action => “create” }, :html
=> {:class => “nifty_form”} do |f| %>

Is it:

<% form_for :action => “create” %>
<%= text_field “model”, “test” %>
<% end %>

What do you mean by not RESTful? What does the above do or not for
you that is not what you want?

Not sure :slight_smile: I thought it was. I guess I’ll use a regular form_tag then.

I still don’t understand why you can’t use form_for if you have an
object that the form is bound to, that is exactly what form_for does.
