What is the problem that is preventing you from storing it in the db?

Hi Colin

I am using feednormalizer gem. I have written code like

@rss = FeedNormalizer::FeedNormalizer.parse open(feed_url)

I am accessing the values like “@rss.entries”.
I have a model named as Data in which I am storing that data.

@data = Data.new
@data.title = @rss.entries.title

But when I try to store in db it shows me like " allocator undefined for
Data".
Any idea???

Data is a reserved word in rails (see
http://wiki.rubyonrails.org/rails/pages/ReservedWords). I suggest
using a different name for the model.

Hey thanks dude… Its work
But now I am suffering from another problem. It stores in db but only
the first entry of XML file. I have written that code in for loop. My
code is as follow:

@rss = FeedNormalizer::FeedNormalizer.parse open(feed_url)
@rss = @rss.entries.paginate :page => params[:page], :per_page => 5 if
!@rss.blank?
@abc = Abc.new
for rss in @rss.entries
if !@rss.entries.blank?
@abc.title = rss.title
@abc.url = rss.url
end
end
@abc.save if !@rss.blank?

  @abc.title = rss.title
  @abc.url = rss.url
 end
end
@abc.save if !@rss.blank?

Would it be better to have the new and the save inside the loop so
that you make a new one and save it for each item? At the moment you
make a new object, loop round rewriting the values in @abc each time,
then save it once.

I presume you realise that the paginate call mean that will only get 5
at a time?

Also it might be worthwhile studying the rails guide on Debugging Rails
Apps at
http://guides.rubyonrails.org/ The techniques there may help you to
identify this sort of problem yourself.
