Simple post action help needed


#1

I have a controller called mystuff_controller.rb, a db called mpstuff
and a table inside that db called data and a column called m1. I was
hoping that some could give a quick step by step on how to create a post
action so that I can write input from my index.html.erb form to that
column.

Thanks in advance

mystuff (controller)

class MystuffController < ApplicationController

def index

  @my =  Mystuff.find(:all)

end


 def new
@post = Mystuff.new

  respond_to do |format|
    format.html #new.html.erb
    format.xml  { render :xml => @post }
  end
end

index.html.erb (view)

includes this line

<%= link_to ‘New post’, new_post_path %>

I get this error

undefined local variable or method `new_post_path’ for
#ActionView::Base:0x384e54c
