Hi How do I supress the reporting of a field name in the full error message? I want the error to be associated with the field so that the .fieldWithErrors class is applied to the field but I don't want it to add the field name to the actual error message. For example: errors.add("occurs_on", "The date can't be today!") unless occurs_on != Date.today I would like the error to read: The date can't be today! Rather than: Occurs on The date can't be today! Is there any way to do this? Thanks in advance Dave

Thanks Wilson I do want to keep it specific to the fields so that they highlight, the link mentioned in the article you referenced: http://wiki.rubyonrails.com/rails/pages/Custom+Error+Message This seems like about the solution I was looking for, however I am not sure how to install it? It comes with an init.rb file and a lib folder with one rb file in it. I have put the init.rb in my project root and the other file into my lib folder but it doesnt seem to override the class. Anyone any ideas?

That's a Rails 'plugin', so you need to extract it into the vendor/plugins/ folder under your Rails project root. There are some brief instructions at the bottom of the page: http://www.railtie.net/articles/2006/01/26/enhanci...
