Ruby Rails Routes and Resources A Route to a Delete Action Deleting Pages

Delete request kept being sent as GET request. Issue only fixed by changing link_to to button_to.

Despite trying out extensive Stack Overflow and Google Fu answers, nothing worked except what is in the title. There were lots of suggestions to require jQuery which I did but to no avail.

I also noticed in the posts show.html.erb file that was created using rails generate scaffold, it also uses button_to and not link_to.

Now it look ugly since some are links and one is a button.

I ran into the save issue and below post helped. It appears to be a jQuery loading issue.
