Simpleton routes

See: Layouts and Rendering in Rails — Ruby on Rails Guides

None of those seem to help, Rails just goes to some blank page with either:

a) render :nothing => true

b) head (blah blah…)

I have an ajax request for the server to check something for me but i do not want to be redirected anywhere when I call it…

not to a blank page or some generated template page, I just want the text response

Actually, your app goes to some blank page. The guide I linked to earlier explains how to control that :slight_smile:

If that's not enough, post your request code and the corresponding method from your controller.

Indeed, you are right! I saw what I was doing wrong.

Thank you,
