Hello everyone!

Does the method save return the ID ?
Because i'm doing this :

flash[:notice] = 'Post was successfully created.'

and I need the ID of the post I just created. I think it could work with
: Post.find(:last) but what if two people are posting at the same time?

Thank you!

Don't you still have @post?

What do you mean?
That I should do this : @post.post_id ?

Try: puts @post.inspect

and check your logs
