First off apologies for a rails question on the ruby list, but the rails mailing list sign-on page seems to be down at the moment so I thought I would look for help here. Bearing in mind I am very new to Rails... I have a create action: def create @post = Post.new(params[:post]) if @post.save @post.tag_with(params[:tag_list]) flash[:notice] = 'Post was successfully created.' redirect_to :action => 'list' else @tag_list = params[:tag_list] render :action => 'new' end end if the @post.save returns false the user is presented with the new view again: def new @tags = Tag.find(:all) @post = Post.new end On the initial call to new the new view displays a list of tags from the array @tags. If the create action fails and the render :action => 'new' line is executed the @tags variable becomes nill How come this happens? and is there a 'clean' was of keeping the @tags variable as it should be no matter how many times the create action fails?? Any help will be gratefully received. David.
