Contact form - NoMethodError (undefined method `each' for nil:NilClass)

Hi Guys,

So basically I want a contact form to appear on all the service pages.
I’ve already created a contact form for the contact page which works perfectly using this tutorial:
http://matharvard.ca/posts/2011/aug/22/contact-form-in-rails-3/

Now I would like to implement this approach on the service pages, and it works until I push the Submit button, when I get the following error:

Processing by ScontactController#create as HTML

Completed 500 Internal Server Error in 1ms

NoMethodError (undefined method each' for nil:NilClass): app/models/servicemail.rb:13:in initialize’
app/controllers/scontact_controller.rb:9:in new' app/controllers/scontact_controller.rb:9:in create’

The parameters are ok.

Rails seems to complain about the each method in the model:
class Servicemail

include ActiveModel::Validations
include ActiveModel::Conversion
extend ActiveModel::Naming

attr_accessor :name, :email, :subject, :body, :szolg

validates :name, :email, :subject, :body, :presence => true
validates :email, :format => { :with => %r{.+@.+…+} }, :allow_blank => true

def initialize(attributes = {})
attributes.each do |name, value|
send("#{name}=", value)
end
end

def persisted?
false
end

end

This is the controller:
class ScontactController < ApplicationController

def new
@message = Servicemail.new
@szolg = Service.find_by_permalink!(params[:id])
end

def create
@message = Servicemail.new(params[:message])
@szolg = Service.find_by_permalink(params[:id])

if @message.valid?
  ServiceContact.new_message(@message).deliver
  redirect_to(szolg_path(@szolg), :notice => "Message sent successfully!")
else
  flash.now.alert = "Please fill out all the required fields!"
  render :new
end

end

end

Is it the name of the model/view/controller that bothers Rails or is it something else?

Best Wishes,
Matt

NoMethodError (undefined method `each' for nil:NilClass):
  app/models/servicemail.rb:13:in `initialize'

That means that at that line of code you are calling 'each' on
something that is nil.

  app/controllers/scontact_controller.rb:9:in `new'
  app/controllers/scontact_controller.rb:9:in `create'

The parameters are ok.

  include ActiveModel::Validations
  include ActiveModel::Conversion
  extend ActiveModel::Naming

  attr_accessor :name, :email, :subject, :body, :szolg

  validates :name, :email, :subject, :body, :presence => true
  validates :email, :format => { :with => %r{.+@.+\..+} }, :allow_blank =>
true

  def initialize(attributes = {})
    attributes.each do |name, value|

Assuming that the above is line 13 then it means that attributes is nil.
