Michael Hartl's ROR Tutorial: CH 7 Sign up form ISSUES!

So I’ve gone over this tutorial, literally recreated the app 4 times but
I
keep getting stuck at the create user with a form in Ch 7. Rails 3
edition.

From what I can tell, there is no action (Post) being created when I
click
on the submit button (no user being created, or errors being generated).
It reads it as (GET). And when I click the button, the URL shows my
authenticity-token… blah blah…(not sure if that can help explain
my
problem). Please can someone help me get past this. I have looked for
nearly weeks with no avail.

User.rb















*class User < ActiveRecord::Base  attr_accessible :name, :email, 
:password,
:password_confirmation  has_secure_password  # Downcases all users 
email's
in the database  before_save { email.downcase! }  validates :name,
presence: true, length: { maximum: 50 }  VALID_EMAIL_REGEX =
/\A[\w+\-.][email protected][a-z\d\-.]+\.[a-z]+\z/i  validates :email, presence: true,
format: { with: VALID_EMAIL_REGEX },            uniqueness: {
case_sensitive: false }    # Creates and authenticates a secure password 
w.
password_digest.  validates :password, presence: true, length: { 
minimum: 6
}  validates :password_confirmation, presence: true*

*end*

routes.rb








*  resources :users   root to: "static_pages#home"  match "/signup", 
to:
"users#new"  match "/about",   to: "static_pages#about"   match 
"/contact",
to: "static_pages#contact" *

new.html.erb:



























*<form class="form">  <div class="container-fluid">    <div
class="row">      <div class="col-xs-7 col-md-7">        <%=
form_for(@user) do |f| %>          <%= render 'shared/error_messages'
%>          <%= f.label :name %>          <%= f.text_field :name
%>          <%= f.label :email %>          <%= f.text_field :email
%>          <%= f.label :password %>          <%= f.password_field
:password %>          <%= f.label :password_confirmation, "Confirmation"
%>          <%= f.password_field :password_confirmation %>          <%=
f.submit "Create my account", class: "btn btn-large btn-primary"
%>          <% end %>      </div>    </div>  </div></form*>

users.controller.rb




















*class UsersController < ApplicationController    def show    @user =
User.find(params[:id])  end  def new    @user = User.new  end  def
create    @user = User.new(params[:user])    if @user.save
flash[:success] = "Welcome personal web application!"      redirect_to
@user    else      render 'new'    end  endend*

Your error is here - you’ve got a form within a form which is invalid
html

I wish I could buy you a drink of your choice Frederick. Thank you for
taking the time to look over my post! It’s truly appreciated!
