Remove  disabled="disabled" and hide from the user with CSS. If it's 
disabled, I believe it won't be submitted.

I?m trying to build a small app to comment on images. Probably I?m almost 
there but currently stuck with updating a ?file.yml' by a html-form. 

I?ve made two routes (shown below) ?get ?/:id/edit? for showing the form 
with the particular image to comment on. When hitting save the ?post 
?/edit? will be called. My problem is that the post route doesn?t have the 

$id initialised. Is there someone around who can tell me how to solve this 

or point to me what I?m doing wrong?

Do you have a hidden from field in your form which passes the id to the 
post route?


I don?t have a hidden field. I tried but then still wasn?t successful.
(see below.. I skipped some fields)

<form method="post" action="/edit">

<input type="text" name="id" id="id" value="[% data.id %]" 

<textarea name="description" rows="20" cols="20" id="Description">[% 
data.description %]</textarea>

<input type="submit" name="submit" value="Save" class="submit-button" />
