I'm using Windows and Postgres 8. I installed RMagic gem thingy and FileColumn plugin ok. I followed instructions exactly as directed on FileColumn web site which is very straight forward: ---model class My_model < ActiveRecord::Base file_column :column_for_file_name end -----view -upload form--set to mulitpart <%= file_column_field "my_model", "column_for_file_name" %> ---controller upload @my_model = My_model.new() @my_model.save(params[:my_model]) end I get a new record inserted into the database but without the filename value and no file is uploaded, althought the directory structure is created. I dont get any error message at all. Can suggest someway to troubleshoot this problem as i don't want to delve into plugin code. Help much appreciated. Si.

My suggestion is to just write your file upload code yourself. It is pretty straightforward. I wrote mine in my models. Just my opinion. I tried filecolumn but just annoying to use especially with the requirement that when you link to a file in your view, you need the actual object present rather than just having the filename. saureen
