Easy created_at/created_on question


#1

I have an easy question that I can’t seem to find an answer to. When I
have
a table with a created_at or created_on column I’ve read that Rails will
automatically update these because they are “magic” column names. I
assumed
that since this was all supposed to be done in the background that these
columns would not show up in the standard forms that are created by the
generate scaffold command, but they do for me.

I thought since these were “magic” rails would not include them on the
form. Is it just up to me to remove them fromt the forms that are
created?
