Is it like this in new.html.erb

In the new.html.erb file, when you have a :title field for example, you
will find the following:

<%= f.label :title %><

When you view this page, you will find that the label is written as:

Does Rails convert the field in this form with a capitalized first

I tried for example to change :title in the above script to Title
immediately, but got an error.

Does that mean I have to leave it as is and Rails will handle the look
of the field?


Read the documentation for label method:

You can also do a view source to see the Rails source code in the docs.
guess is that it is calling humanize method to convert the text to camel
