Why is a GET verb being used?

Michael Toth asked in Rails

I have the following error occurring after selecting a link.

ActionController::RoutingError (No route matches [GET] "/admins/delete_user"):

But the link is constructed as follows:

<td><%= link_to "Delete", "/admins/delete_user?id=#{}", :method=>"post",
            :confirm=>"Are you sure?", :remote=>:true, :class=>"alert" %>

Why is the controller trying to use GET? Any ideas?


What does your routes.rb file look like?

I would run a rake routes | grep admins and see what is displayed.

Is the /admin route supposed to have an s? (/admins)

Easier to debug with the routes file content
