I am populating a table skills which relate to a table cv in a 1 cv to many skills relationship... I populate the skills as below; def new @session[:cv_id] = params[:id] @skill = Skill.new end def create @cv = Cv.find(@session[:cv_id]) @cv.skills << Skill.new(params[:skill]) if @cv.save flash[:notice] = 'Skill was successfully created.' redirect_to :action => 'show', :controller => 'cv_admin', :id => @cv else render :action => 'new' end end Having got the create method to populate correctly, the validation helpers in the skills model have stopped working they trap errors on the form and send the form back, but the; <%= error_messages_for 'skill' %> no longer works as it just has errors associated with cv rather than skill... any idea how to make the standard helpers work in this 1 to many world? Thanks
