Index page shown to have been accessed in logs after resource creation BUT the new entry page persis

Hi, guys

I have just added a new functionality and attribute to my app.

Basically the main resource, ‘part’ has been linked with category and
sub category objects.

When creating a new ‘part’ object, the entry form now has two drop
down boxes, category and sub category.

I put in all the required attributes and hit “Save”.

‘parts/create’ is then run (parts controller’s ‘create’ method).
Based on my controller code, after the object has been successfully
added into the database, a redirection is to be
made to the index page of the ‘parts’ resource (ie. ‘/parts’).

Here’s how the log looks like.

----- extract starts ---------------------------

----- extract ends ----------------------------

The weird thing here is that whilst “/parts” is accessed as soon as
the insertion is successful and all parts objects are retrieved,
in my web interface, the entry form still persists.

What could be wrong?
what should I be checking?

Thank you

Here’s what my parts_controller’s create method looks like:

POST /parts

POST /parts.xml

def create
# Record current user’s id as he/she created the part
params[:part][:created_by] =
params[:part][:updated_by] =

@part =[:part])

    flash[:notice] = 'Part was successfully created.'
    redirect_to( :action => 'index' )
    format.html { render :action => "new" }


don’t worry. Figured it out.
I had ’ data-remote=“true” ’ in my form which makes any request to my
controller an ajax call (hence ‘as JS’ is being spotted each time a
controller method is called).
