index page shown to have been accessed in logs after resource creation BUT the new entry page persists.

Hi, guys

   I have just added a new functionality and attribute to my app.

Basically the main resource, 'part' has been linked with category and sub category objects.

When creating a new 'part' object, the entry form now has two drop down boxes, category and sub category.

I put in all the required attributes and hit "Save".

'parts/create' is then run (parts controller's 'create' method). Based on my controller code, after the object has been successfully added into the database, a redirection is to be made to the index page of the 'parts' resource (ie. '/parts').

Here's how the log looks like.

----- extract starts ---------------------------

----- extract ends ----------------------------

The weird thing here is that whilst "/parts" is accessed as soon as the insertion is successful and all parts objects are retrieved, in my web interface, the entry form still persists.

What could be wrong? what should I be checking?

Thank you

Here's what my parts_controller's create method looks like:

  # POST /parts   # POST /parts.xml   def create     # Record current user's id as he/she created the part     params[:part][:created_by] =     params[:part][:updated_by] =

    @part =[:part])

    if         flash[:notice] = 'Part was successfully created.'         redirect_to( :action => 'index' )     else         format.html { render :action => "new" }     end   end

don't worry. Figured it out. I had ' data-remote="true" ' in my form which makes any request to my controller an ajax call (hence 'as JS' is being spotted each time a controller method is called).
