Problems getting to sign up page

Sublime text crashed as i was using it and ever since i cant seem to get to the sign up page via localhost:3000/users/sign_up. it seems to just revert back to the list all statuses page.

I've tried using rake routes and all the right information shows up. i've made sure the public index file is gone but for some reason the page still wont seem to load. any ideas?

I'm 99% sure you are already logged in on the page, so it takes you to root automatically. You'd have to sign out (restarting the browser or the whole system might also do the trick).

How would you sign out?

Well, if you used Devise, you already have a path for logging out. You just need to create a link for signing out and click it.
