Subject Re: [s1] action paths not resolving correctly
Date Fri, 03 Aug 2007 22:50:33 GMT
I can't tell you anything definitive, since you didn't include all your 
relevant code. I would suggest starting by simplifying things as much as 
possible. Take out all your Javascript and strip the page down to just a 
form with a couple of submit buttons dispatching to different methods.

Once you get that working, start adding functionality back in one piece 
at a time until you find out what's broken. Fix, and continue.
