I was wondering if anybody knew what '<some type> expected, got Fixnum'
means?  My code looks like the following:

      anevent =
      anevent.title = params["event"]["title"]
      anevent = session[:user_id]
      com = Community.find(params[:id]) << anevent
rescue Exception => exc

But I get an exception.

Thanks a lot.

Is this what you really want?

<some type> expected, got Fixnum: that means that you try to assign a
(an integer...) into something else, and it is not possible to cast the
fixnum into that something (okay, I'm not sure this helps, I find the
quite clear if you read it)

Your line:
anevent = session[:user_id]
is suspicious. You try to assign session[:user_id] to anevent, and
probably no way you can cast a Fixnum into an Event object,
