Hello. I switched to rails and mac from c# and a pc. I'm lovin it, but wierd things keep happening with my code and after 3 days I am totally stuck. I have a form in login.rhtml <%= form_tag :action => 'process_registration' %> <h3>Register</h3> <p>Email Address:<br><%= text_field "user", "email_address", :id => 'stext' %><br> Password:<br><%= password_field "user", "password", :id => 'stext' %><br> Confirm Password:<br><%= password_field "user", "confirm_password", :id => 'stext' %><br> <br> <span style="margin: 16px;"><%= submit_tag 'register' %></span> </p> <%= end_form_tag %> this goes to my controller code: def process_registration @user = User.new(params[:user]) @user.save return end my migration for the table: def self.up create_table :users do |t| t.column :first_name, :string, :limit => 32 t.column :last_name, :string, :limit => 32 t.column :email_address, :string, :limit => 128, :null => false t.column :password, :string, :limit => 32, :null => false end end I can manually insert into the table, I can also circumvent my form and just do a @u = User.new @u.email_address = "email@example.com" @u.password = "something" @u.save that adds a row. if I use User.new(params[:user]) or even @u.email_address = params[:user][:email_address] then I get nulls in the database. I am going insane! I have migrated down and back up, removed all validation from my model: class User < ActiveRecord::Base attr_accessor :password, :email_address attr_accessor :confirm_password def self.authenticate( user ) find( :first, :conditions => [ "email_address = ? and password = ?", user[:email_address], user[:password] ] ) end end i have redone my form over and over, the code goes from the form to the controller, calls the right method, etc. if I use the debugger I can see my value in the params[:user][:password] but when save is called it only inserts nulls. Am I missing something really stupid? Please help, my client is getting pissed :)

Nevermind :) I was doing a couple of things screwy that Ruby didn't like. for instance I had confirm_password instead of password_confirmation. Everything is working as expected now.
