Routes not working

Hello everyone,
  I've been using RoR for awhile now, but I'm new to Rails 3... I'm
trying to follow a tutorial that creates a registration page that
creates a user. Simple enough, right? When I go to
server:3000/user/register, it comes up with my registration page
fine. However, when I submit it (form_for :user) it complains that my
route (user/register) does not exist... Not quite sure whats going
on... In routes.rb, I have 'get "user/register"' listed.

Can anyone clarify what I might be doing wrong?

Thanks,
  - Jeff

Try doing this instead, and see if this helps:

form_for User.new

Thanks for the suggestion, unfortunately that doesn't work either - it
gives me a NoMethodError...

I just figured it out - I added a line in my routes.rb under 'get
"user/register"' that reads 'post "user/register"' ...

Does anybody know why this wasn't there to begin with?

Thanks,
- Jeff
