I redid my code, before I tried using the friendship-plugin
"has_many_friends" but it got messy and wrong, so I borrowed "PRACTICAL
RAILS FOR SOCIAL NETWORKING" from the library. I'm trying to use the
book's example "ADDING FRIENDS WITH XFN_DETAILS" together with the
"RESTful authentication"-plugin (which otherwise workes great), but I
can't seem to get it to work right when implementing friendships.
The book refers to "logged_in_user" to get the USER which is logged in,
while I refer to "current_user" (from RESTful authentication). I
thought, in this case I only have to change the "logged_in_user" to
"current_user" and that would somewhat be the only change needed from
the books example. This didn't work. So I tried to implement,
"logged_in_user" (in the lib/ authenticated_system.rb) alongside the
"current_user" but I recieved the same error, which lead me to believe
there is something else which is wrong. It renders an error:
"ActiveRecord::RecordNotFound in FriendsController#new
Couldn't find User without an ID"
as I try to access
"http://localhost:3000/users/1/friends/new?friend_id=2" to create a
It should (in my humble opinion) find a user - and yes, I've got 2 users
in my users table.
I've been trying for like two weeks total to understand and implement
different friendship solutions, and I'm beginning to understand (and I
thought I understood today) but I'm sort-of running out of patience....
I'd be so appriciative to anyone who could help me with this.
