I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

None of the links is working...

For any request to a Rails website, the query information after the '?' in the URL is parsed and placed into the 'params' hash variable that is made available to every action in every query.  So to ignore it, simply don't use anything from the 'params' variable in your controller code.  

If you have tried the above and are still having problems, could you elaborate on what's happening?  What problem are you seeing because of the Crystal Reports addition?  Could you include the Rails code that is causing the problem?
