I've been following along the Forum series of episodes, when I try to submit a forum post, I get an error. It seems that the controller has trouble assigning the user id to the current user. I thought my associations were wrong, or had a typo but I tried to litteraly copy-paste Chris's code from the Github repo and nothing. What the hell is going on??
class User < ActiveRecord::Base devise :database_authenticatable, :registerable, :recoverable, :rememberable, :trackable, :validatable has_many :forum_threads has_many :forum_posts end
forum threads model
class ForumThread < ActiveRecord::Base belongs_to :user has_many :forum_posts has_many :users, through: :forum_posts accepts_nested_attributes_for :forum_posts validates :subject, presence: true validates_associated :forum_posts end
I also tried scratching the
through: :forum_postsand the whole
has_many :users, through: :forum_posts... nope
forum posts model
class ForumPost < ActiveRecord::Base belongs_to :user belongs_to :forum_thread end
The part of the ForumThreadsController that seems to raise the problem
def create @forum_thread = current_user.forum_threads.new forum_thread_params @forum_thread.forum_posts.first.user_id = current_user.id if @forum_thread.save redirect_to @forum_thread else render action: :new end end ``` [Here's the repo](http://github.com/mickeytgl/gorails_forum)
