Routing Error No route matches [PATCH] "/locations"

I'm getting a route error after trying to update a location item

I'm using before_action to set location id

before_action :set_location, only: [:show, :edit, :update, :destroy]

private
def set_location
@location = Location.find(params[:id])
end


here is my controller
I only have trouble with update new and delete work fine

def create
@location = Location.new(location_params)
respond_to do |format|
if @location.save
format.html { redirect_to @location, notice: 'Location was successfully created.' }
format.json { render action: 'show', status: :created, location: @location }
else
format.html { render action: 'new' }
format.json { render json: @location.errors, status: :unprocessable_entity }
end
end


end

def update
respond_to do |format|
if @location.update(location_params)
format.html { redirect_to @location, notice: 'Location was successfully updated.' }
format.json { head :no_content }
else
format.html { render action: 'edit' }
format.json { render json: @location.errors, status: :unprocessable_entity }
end
end
end


here is how my routs are defined

Routes

Routes match in priority from top to bottom

Helper HTTP Verb Path Controller#Action
Path / Url
static_pages_home_path GET /static_pages/home(.:format) static_pages#home
static_pages_help_path GET /static_pages/help(.:format) static_pages#help

location_path GET /locations/:id(.:format) locations#show
PATCH /locations/:id(.:format) locations#update
PUT /locations/:id(.:format) locations#update
DELETE /locations/:id(.:format) locations#destroy

Answer

You specified a target URL for your form tag instead of letting Rails pick one for you. Because of that, instead of making a PATCH request to /locations/:id your form is trying to make one to the URL you specified, which does not have a PATCH route attached to it.

Simply remove the :url option from your form tag, like so:

<%= form_for @location, :html => { :multipart => true , :class => 'form-horizontal' } do |f| %>
