I have an issue with Ruby on Rails routing.
Rails.application.routes.draw do resources :messages root to: 'dashboards#show' end
class MessagesController < ApplicationController def index # Do current user messages select from database here end end
link to messges:
<%= button_to 'messages', messages_path %>
The action 'create' could not be found for MessagesController
Why I have this issue? What am I doing wrong? Why I get this error?
The button_to method does a post by default. When you have specified the route as a resource, it maps a post to the #create method. You need to define that method, stop using a post, or modify your routes.rb to send a post to a different method. From the looks of how you are using it, you should probably just modify the button_to to use a get:
<%= button_to 'messages', messages_path, method: :get %>
