Response to: Couldn't find Recipe without an ID

I encountered the same problem. I ended up with a different solution:



<form action="../update/" method="POST">


becomes



<form action="../update/<%= @recipe.id %>" method="POST">


Would anyone like to offer an 'official' response as to which of these 2 methods is the prefered Rails way?

    SixSide, only your version worked for me with rails 0.13.1 with ruby 1.8.2 (the versions on the website).

    Curt, thank you for a fantastic article. But could you please update edit.rhtml as SixSide shows both in the article and in the sample ZIP file, as I believe nearly every reader is wasting time tracking down this bug.

    Thanks.

      Seconded - frankly I'm amazed this fundamental error has persisted for almost 9 months without official correction.

      Sure... I'll confirm the change and ask my editor to update the article.
