Hi there tGoesRails,
My apologies, although without more information it is hard to base reasoning behind this.
Since I see you're using Rails 3.2 - you're definitely on the right track. Are you using store location? If so, this does not preserve form data. Also, browsers typically do not allow redirecting to POST request, which browsers have you tested this on? Does it work on any of them? Can you submit a code snippet so we can view what and where the issue lies?
I again truly apologize if I am missing any important data you've enclosed, so if that is the case, please feel free to point that out.
