Removed show method from controller yet show page is still present. why?

I used “rails generate scaffold …” to build my model, views and
controllers. However for this particular MVC I don’t want to have a show
template. So, I removed the show method from the controller. But, show
still appears. Why is this. Does ApplicationController have a show
method?
Is the only means to do this by deleting the show template? thanks

What does rake routes tell you? Compare that to config/routes.rb.

Yes, it must be in routes. I forgot. In config/routes.rb it seems to be
handle with:

resources :accounts

In the documentation it seems I can specify which methods I want to
allow:

resources :accounts, only: [:index, :new, :create, :edit, :update,
:destroy]# no show

is this the correct/ best way to restrict access? Then I can delete my
controller method ad view(?)

You can also use

resources :accounts, except: [ :show ]

Sure. Or maybe. Do frequent git saves, try it, change your mind,
it’s all good :slight_smile:

Hey guys, I just read why this is happening at The Rails 4 Way book:

“The goal of the typical controller action is to render a view
template—that is, to fill out the template and hand the results, usually
an
HTML document, back to the server for delivery to the client. Oddly—at
least it might strike you as a bit odd, though not illogical—you don’t
actually need to define a controller action, as long as you’ve got a
template that matches the action name.”

So, try to delete the ‘show’ template for this controller and try again.
