I would like to have a link_to automatically populate a field in the
form that it is linking to.
For example (excuse my silly words, im trying to make a point)
<%= link_to “Add a COOL Post”, new_post_path, :howcoolisit => ‘COOL’
<%= link_to “Add a NOTCOOL Post”, new_post_path, :howcoolisit =>
Then, I would have a field in that form:
<%= f.hidden_field :howcoolisit %>
And I would want it to be populated automatically (either NOTCOOL, or
COOL, depending on the link_to that the user has chosen.)
However, it is just being blank… nothing is getting populated. I must
be missing something, or my approach is wrong.
Does anyone know how to accomplish such a task? Thank you
