Inserting records into MySQL using RoR

Is it possible to insert records into a MySQL database by clicking on a
link? I can do this with a form, but I see no tutorials, information on
the internet that this is possible. I guess I am thinking along the
lines of dynamically creating a link that would pass the values in a
querystring. Can someone point me in the right direction?

You should be able to by using a similar method to create (in
scaffold). Just use link_to:

 Thanks for the help. I'll give that a try.
