I'm borrowing this question from a user named Spencer on the Rails Forums. He clearly explains the issue we're having: "First of all, apologies, as I am probably missing something utterly obvious. I am trying to set up a polymorphic assets model, with attachment_fu. Essentially attachment_fu is working as I can upload directly to the attachment model. However when I try and upload a file from another controller (linked polymorphically) I get errors about the content_type etc. not being in the list. I assume this means that the params array isn't capturing the data? How can I correct this? in my asset model i have: 1. belongs_to :attachable, :polymorphic => true (and has_attachment + validates_as_attachment) in my product model I have: 1. has_many :assets, :as => :attachable in the create method in my products controller is am using: 1. @asset = @product.assets.build(params[:uploaded_data]) In my new product form I have: 1. <%= file_field 'asset', 'uploaded_data' %> A yaml dump of the form content 1. --- !map:HashWithIndifferentAccess html: multiparttrue commit: Create product: !map:HashWithIndifferentAccess name: test body: test title: test green: test category_ids: - "3" sidebar: "" description: test action: create controller: admin/products asset: ! map:HashWithIndifferentAccess uploaded_data: cm_logo.jpg The errors I get: Assets is invalid Content type is not included in the list Content type can't be blank Size is not included in the list Size can't be blank Filename can't be blank Any help greatly appreciated." http://www.railsforum.com/viewtopic.php?pid=23135 Thanks, Walksalong

Thanks for the answer Rick. I tried your solution, but validates_as_attachment keeps kicking it back saying the attachment is invalid. I've tried gifs and jpegs at small sizes. When I remove the validates_as_attachment everything is null.
