hi there, i have this problem, i am a newb in ror and don't know how to do this. i have a user_id column in a database table named items, i also use the login generator, i can signup, login, and logout, no problem with it, but when i am logon to the system, and tried to make a new item, the user_id field is null, my user_id is not written in the user_id table, and i have really no idea how to do it. i have associations, has_many :items in user.rb model, and belongs_to :user in item.rb. i know you can help me with this, like i've said, i am just learning ror and new to this forum as well. please post your replies on what info you need to help me. thanks in advance.

You likely want to do something like this is your controller: current_user.items.create(params[:item]) This will automatically set the user_id for you. -- Zack Chandler http://depixelate.com

Another option would be to store the user_id in session[:user_id] during login. Then when you create a new object: unless session[:user_id].empty? @thing = Thing.new(params) @thing.user_id = session[:user_id] @thing.save else flash[:notice] = "Log in before creating something!" redirect_to :somewhere end
