link_to :remote with parameters not working in Rails 3?

Hey community,

since some day i dive into Rails and started with the basics for developing applications. Yesterday i spend a lot of time for how to create a remote'able link_to with parameters. What orginally should worked is this code-sample: <%= link_to "Click here", index_path, :remote => true, :picture => "12" %> which creates the following html-code: <a href="/index" data- remote="true" picture="21">Click here</a> My controller receive's the Ajax Get-Request but without any parameter (checked my logfiles too).

After some testing i found a solution for submitting paramters on a remote call: <%= link_to "Click here", { :controller => :index, :action => :index, :picture => 21 }, :remote => true %> <a data-remote="true" href="/times?picture=21">Click here</a>

So, why does the first example not working in Rails 3 anymore? And how should i do it correctly in Rails 3?

Greets, Gerrit

I found now a solution...the params must be set into the target- parameter <%= link_to image_tag("/images/sample.gif"), product_path(:customer_id =>, :remote => true %>
