Restful_authentication: Why are columns I add to user table never populated?

Hi,

I’m using the restful_authentication plugin that I downloaded from
here – http://agilewebdevelopment.com/plugins/. I wanted to use the
plugin with an existing table I have, which has a column named
“user_type_id”. However, when I submit the form, although the columns
the plugin is expecting get populated, none of the ones I have
supplied do. Here is my form:

<%= start_form_tag(:action => “userconfirm”) %>

<%= hidden_field ‘user’, ‘user_type_id’, :value=>2 %>

First name
<%= text_field 'user', 'ship_to_first_name' %>

...

Username
<%= text_field 'user', 'login' %>

Password
<%= password_field 'user', 'password' %>

Confirm Password
<%= password_field 'user', 'password_confirmation' %>

<%= submit_tag "Create" %> <% end_form_tag %>

and here is the section defined in the controller.

    def userconfirm
            @user = User.new(params[:user])
            if @user.save
                    flash[:notice] = 'User was successfully

created.’
redirect_to :action => ‘list’
else
render :action => ‘userinfo’
end
end

The error I get is
ActiveRecord::StatementInvalid in RegisterController#userconfirm

Hi,

Did you add your custom column to the list of columns listed after

attr_accessible?

attr_accessible :user_type_id, :email, :login, :password,
:password_confirmation

something like that

Binh

is :user_type_id set in attr_protected?

Feel free to add me to MSN and/or GTalk as this email.

Yup that was it. I added it to attr_accessible and the user was
created. Thanks for the help. 5 stars. - Dave
