Rails 3 link_to (:method => :delete) not working
I'm having trouble with my verbs in Rails...
viewing a page for a resource (Dog) which has_many (Fleas). Embedded in dog's show.html.haml is a call to render @dog.fleas which automatically(?) finds & uses the template in "fleas/_flea.html.haml" to list each flea associated with said dog.
this displays correctly. whew! Now, next to each flea I've put a "Kill Flea" link that goes to a url: //localhost:3000/dogs/1/fleas/7. Which is generated by:
= link_to("Kill Flea", [ flea.dog, flea ], :method => :delete, :confirm => "Sure? A bunny will die")
but every time that link is clicked there is no confirmation... and it renders the flea's show.html page. it's as if it's using GET on /dogs/1/fleas/7 instead of DELETE?!?
ps- not worried about spiders & robots deleting things in my database... i'm just trying to learn Rails..and understand what's happening
