no SQL inserts -- is the controller the problem?

The "save changes" button from http://localhost:3000/feeds/show/1 is
supposed to insert data to the memberships table. A check mark is placed
next to a "tag" which is unassociated with that feed, then button is
clicked.

there are three tables: feeds, tags and a join table of memberships. (I
commented out the validations.)

line 96 looks to be the "meat" of the method for the controller, where I
suspect the problem lies:

thufir@arrakis ~/strawr $ cat app/controllers/feeds_controller.rb -n |
head -n 104 | tail -n 23
    82 def add_some_tags
    83 logger.info
"*******************************add_some_tags*******************************"
    84
    85 @feed = Feed.find(params[:id])
    86
    87 logger.info "@feed: #{@feed}"
    88
    89 @unused_tags =
    90 Tag.find(:all) - @feed.tags
    91
    92 if @unused_tags.any?
    93 @tags_to_add = @unused_tags.select { |tag|
    94 (params['tag'+tag.id.to_s]['checked'] == '1')}
    95 @tags_to_add.each { |tag|
    96 @feed.tags << Tag.find_or_create_by_tag(params
[:which_tag]) unless params[:which_tag].blank?
    97 }
    98 end
    99
   100 if @tags_to_add.any? and @feed.save
   101 flash[:notice] = 'Tags have been added!'
   102 end
   103 redirect_to :action => 'show', :id => @feed
   104 end

I suspect that the above method does nothing because the log shows no SQL
inserts. The "add_some_tags" is strictly querying the db (particularly
I'm looking at line 54, where I'd also like to see, I believe, an insert):

The "save changes" button from http://localhost:3000/feeds/show/1 is
supposed to insert data to the memberships table. A check mark is
placed
next to a "tag" which is unassociated with that feed, then button is
clicked.

there are three tables: feeds, tags and a join table of
memberships. (I
commented out the validations.)

line 96 looks to be the "meat" of the method for the controller,
where I
suspect the problem lies:

Install ruby-debug (gem install ruby-debug)
run rdebug script/server

stick a call to 'debugger' where you think might be relevant
Step though the code.
