I've been trying to reply to a post, but none of my responses are taking

http://groups.google.com/group/rubyonrails-talk/browse_thread/thread/cf59e09f98981f27/42caa6a0b45fd271#42caa6a0b45fd271

I’ve been trying to say this:
I responded just a bit ago, but I don’t see my response, so hopefully
there won’t be two responses…

Essentially, Drew, you can map the column to be something else when
you call “humanize” on it. Try this:

class Post < ActiveRecord::Base

HUMANIZED_COLUMNS = {:msg => “Message”}

def self.human_attribute_name(attribute)
HUMANIZED_COLUMNS[attribute.to_sym] || super
end
end

HTH,

Is there an easy way to customize the display name of the attributed
used in a validation error message. For example, let’s say I have an
active record with the attribute :msg that is validated for presence.
If is doesn’t exist I don’t want the user to see “msg can’t be
blank!” I want it to say “Message can’t be blank!” Is there an easy
way to do that?

When I respond either through the web interface or in email, it says
it’s successful (in the browser), but my answers are not listed…
this was hours ago. Do I need to gain approval before posting
responses?
