In my save function in my (ajax!!!) controller, i've got a bit like this: if ... flash[:notice] = 'NOT SAVED: This month is locked' render :partial => 'edit' else save it... redirect to 'show' action.... ... If i try to save an entry for a locked month, it correctly brings me back to my edit action with the 'not saved' message correctly showing. But if i then go to another page, the 'not saved' message still shows! But then if i refresh, it disappears. It seems the flash notice sticks around one too many page views. Any Ideas?

Bingo - sorted it myself! Put this in the application controller: before_filter :remove_flash_notice private def remove_flash_notice #flash[:notice] = '' true end Isn't this a bit of an oversight, though? Or am i missing something?

Yes, you are missing the fact that you should use flash[:something] = value only if you intend to redirect_to another action. Otherwise you're better of using flash.now[:something] = value -- Kent --- http://www.datanoise.com
