Restful delete is driving me nuts

Hi,

In my project, all delete links aren’t working. They keep acting as
“show” action.

Here is an example for the announcements controller.

In routes.rb :

map.resources :announcements

In my index view, I have the standard
<%= link_to ‘Destroy’, announcement, :confirm => ‘Are you
sure?’, :method => :delete %>

But when ever I click on the link, controller gets a “get” message,
not a “delete”.

Processing AnnouncementsController#show (for 127.0.0.1 at 2009-03-02
14:01:23) [GET]
Session ID: 95ccbfa93eef0bf8408147c7b6b9a287
Parameters: {“action”=>“show”, “id”=>“2”,
“controller”=>“announcements”, “locale”=>“en”}

In order to get the delete working I had to create a new named route.

map.annoucements_delete “announcements/:id/
delete”, :controller=>“announcements”, :action => “destroy”

<%= link_to ‘delete’, annoucements_delete_path(announcement), :confirm
=> ‘Are you sure?’, :method => :delete %>

It works, but it is ugly.

What did I do wrong ?
Thanks

In my very very small example, the following works for me:

<%= link_to “delete”, announcement*_path(announcement), :confirm
=>
“Are you sure?”, :method => :delete
%>*

Good luck,

Do you have javascript enabled in the browser you’re testing the
delete action with?

<%= link_to ‘Destroy’, announcement, :method => :delete %> produces an
anchor tag to the show action but with a bunch of javascript code to
emulate the DELETE http method.
