User profiles with restful_authentication

Posted by Chirag Patel on December 22, 2007

 

Error when updating the user from a form

ActiveRecord::RecordInvalid (Validation failed: Password confirmation can’t be blank, Password is too short (minimum is 4 characters), Password can’t be blank):

 

 

 

Suggestion

It’s probably because of the restrictions on the User model (attr_accessible or attr_protected, in particular). But allowing users access to any part of the User model via mass assignment is dangerous. That’s why many people create a separate Profile model and link it via a 1:1 (belongs_to, has_one) relationship.

 

 

Solution

Coming soon
