Problem located, and resolved. The problem seems to have been 2 fold....first off, I didn't have a users controller....creating an empty one fixed the login/logout/signup behavior. Now I can even edit user. Secondly, I had cchangedall the link_tos to button_tos forgetting that by default button_to uses POST rather than GET. This caused all sorts of havock, and was fixed by adding method: :get toallthe button_to statements.

Posted in Very strange Rails app behaviour

I've been writing a meal planning app, using Devise for user auth. I've generated the viexws,,,,,,,,,, set config.scoped_views to true, made sure routes.rb has devise_for :users, and setup my before_action. When I visit app root not signed in,,,,,, I'm taken to a non-devise sign-in page that doesn't work yet the url in address bar is users/sign_in. If I refresh, Devise page loads and I can login.

If I create or edit a recipe, and it's successful, I'm taken to recipe detail page as expected,,,,,,,,, but page is blank. Refresh, and data comes back.

Login/Logout buttons point to Devise(yes, I've tripple checked) yet only load Devise forms some of the time. The rest of the time,this non-Deviseform that Ican't find afile for for the life of me loads.

Anyone haveideas what wouldcause this?
