probleme with delete

hi, im want to delete a user from a view controled by a different controler than user_controller.rb. from the view a make:

<td><%= user.username %></td>       <td><%= %></td>       <td><%= user.sign_in_count %></td>       <td><%= user.amis %></td>       <td><%= link_to 'Show', user %></td>       <td><%= link_to 'Edit', edit_user_path(user) %></td>       <td><%= link_to 'Destroy', user, :confirm => 'Are you sure?', :method => :delete %></td>

the url of this view is : http://localhost:3000/user_admins/index when i clik in the link_to 'Show' it dispatch to: http://localhost:3000/users/1 and for edit : http://localhost:3000/users/1/edit

the probleme is when i want to delete the user, it do the same like i want to show him and the view rended is the same of showing user : http://localhost:3000/users/1

in the routes.rb there's resources :users resources :user_admins, :only => [:index] do     collection do #operate on all ressources, not on a specific one       ................................      ...................................     end   end

what can i do to resolve this probleme please. thanks

its ok, i resolve it this is what i did: int the view: <td><%= link_to 'Destroy', :controller => :users, :action => :destroy, :id => user %></td>

in the routes.rb: resources :users, :only => [:destroy] do     collection do

      get 'users' => :destroy     end   end resources :users

all works good :slight_smile:

http://localhost:3000/users/1 is the correct URL for deleting a user. However, it should be sent with a “method” of “delete” instead of “get”. That’s what this snippet of code is for:

method => :delete

If it’s not working properly from your first example, you probably don’t have jQuery/Prototype UJS setup properly. Can you confirm that?

It’s very bad form to have a “get” link delete an object in the database. What happens if a web crawler or bot clicks on all the links on your page? All your items will be deleted.

ok i will test. thanks
