Forms and Links

Tonight I was able to put some solid time into OutBlogger, users can now add watches to feeds they are interested in.

So I've gotten a decent handle on Rails by now but I still struggle in two main areas: Forms and Links in views. It's simply a matter of not knowing which tool to apply where (form_for, link_to, button_to, etc.). Rails has a number of helper methods and it seems like every example I look at implements them differently... Which leads to frustration and me trying a number of different things. I usually know WHAT I need to do (ex. tonight I needed to send a POST containing a new watch to the watches controller) but I struggle with HOW to do build inside a view.

Head colds suck.
