Simpleton routes

Is there some way to keep rails from trying to open a page on a route?
Basically I just want to send an ajax query to:
http://localhost:3000/method/multiply?num1=3&num2=4

while staying on http://localhost:3000/index

Thanks Josh

None of those seem to help, Rails just goes to some blank page with
either:
a) render :nothing => true
b) head (blah blah…)

I have an ajax request for the server to check something for me but i do
not want to be redirected anywhere when I call it…
not to a blank page or some generated template page, I just want the
text
response

Actually, your app goes to some blank page. The guide I linked to
earlier explains how to control that :slight_smile:

If that’s not enough, post your request code and the corresponding
method from your controller.

Indeed, you are right! I saw what I was doing wrong.

Thank you,
