I have an index page in my site and each item displayed from the model
has a link (that looks like a button)... I want that link to simply
clear a field (or set it to some value) in the underlying model for
that entry... The page does not have a form on it and i'd like to
avoid that if possible....
seems i should be able to select the link and have it process an
update on the item behind the scenes and then re-display the page (or
if i get fancier later - use ajax to red-display the item?)...
I hope this makes sense... i'm obviously new to web dev AND rails...
