Topic: Can't call same action from RJS
Here's my setup:
My home page has a short list of "articles" in a partial, with a conditional around the link to use link_to, if rendered from the home page, or link_to_remote if rendered from the articles page so I can swap out the HTML for each article via ajax.
My action to display an article is called "read". When I view an article from the home page via "articles/read/permalink", it works fine. I am redirected to the articles page, and it will load. But, when I'm on the articles page and I try to call "read" using an RJS file of the same name, it won't fire "page[:content].replace_html 'foo'" at all.
But, if I add a new action and use RJS to call the new action, it will work. I only need one action - read to retrieve the data I need. What should I be doing to work around this problem?
Thanks for your advice,
