Rails for Beginners Part 14: Handling Sign Up Errors Discussion

Love these Chris, noting some new tricks along the way. Plus your always positive demeanour makes this so enjoyable to go through.


If you're finding that you don't get 'Thanks!' back after setting up your create method, add local: true to your form.

Thanks for pointing that out, local: true resolves it

Hey! Where in the form are you adding the local: true, using sublime 3 and have tried plugging it in a few places? thank you!


I could not use @user.errors.any? in rails console.

but if I use [email protected]? Maybe it is my ruby version it is not the 3 but the 2.7... but my rails is 6.1.1 .
The error is in minute 6:37 <% if user = @user.errors.any? %>

Very sorry my wrong here. I did not saved the data bank so it was empty. Very sorry.


hi, when I click sign up nothing happens, why :( ?


Solution please!!!
when i create the account with already existing email ,, then it does not give an error.
already existing email validation is not working.

Currently we're only validating that each user instance has an email but we don't specify whether it should be unique or not:


How can I translate the error message?


As others have pointed out, is a point of discussion with the difference on Rails 6.1 vs 6.0 (which i was using )


I'm also having the issue that the new view does not show the errors.
Render :new is called and @user.errors does have the correct errors.
Using Rails

Hotwire turbo was causing the problems for me.
adding 'data: { turbo: false }' to the form.submit made the form work like it should.


I'm getting an error that I can't seem to get past.
When submitting the form, I get:
'ActionController::ParameterMissing (param is missing or the value is empty: user'

I feel like something isn't correctly structured somewhere. Here is the output of my Params:
Parameters: {"authenticity_token"=>"[FILTERED]", "email"=>"travs", "password"=>"[FILTERED]", "password_confirmation"=>"[FILTERED]", "commit"=>"Create User"}.

Unlike in the video, my email, password, and password_confirmation are NOT wrapped insider a user param. Where does that happen??

I figured this out. In my form, i had @User while it was declared as @user
