Object not saving but no error message displayed

Hi. I have a form in my app which, for some reason is not saving any
objects to the database. After clicking submit it redirects back to
itself, but it dosent give any information as to what is going wrong.

Here is the info from development.log,

Processing AuctionsController#create (for 127.0.0.1 at 2008-03-25

Any help would be appreciated, thanks.

We would need to see the code for your ‘create’ action in your
auctions_controller.rb

Auction controller:

def create
@cats = Category.find(:all)
params[:auction][:user_id] = current_user.id
@auction = Auction.new(params[:auction])

respond_to do |format|
  if @auction.save
    flash[:notice] = 'Auction was successfully created.'
    format.html { redirect_to(@auction) }
    format.xml  { render :xml => @auction, :status => :created, 

:location => @auction }
else
format.html { render :action => “new” }
format.xml { render :xml => @auction.errors, :status =>
:unprocessable_entity }
end
end
end

I also have an items controller, with a create action which is pretty
much identical, but works just fine.

Item controller:

def create
@cats = Category.find(:all)
params[:item][:user_id] = current_user.id
@item = Item.new(params[:item])

respond_to do |format|
  if @item.save
    flash[:notice] = 'Item was successfully created.'
    format.html { redirect_to(@item) }
    format.xml  { render :xml => @item, :status => :created, 

:location => @item }
else
format.html { render :action => “new” }
format.xml { render :xml => @item.errors, :status =>
:unprocessable_entity }
end
end
end

Everything looks good there. You said it’s redirecting back on itself.
I assume you mean that it’s going back to the ‘new’ action, which is
what you have it doing if the save fails (which is good). So, make sure
you have the following in your new.html.erb file…

<%= error_messages_for :auction %>

That should hopefully give you a hint why the save is failing. Probably
some validations you have setup that aren’t passing.
