@Rick: What do you mean by "if I try to sign in (using Devise)" and
"If I'm on the login screen however"?
Sorry I screwed up the terminology a bit. I'm using :confirmable and
there is a screen where you can "sign up" which sends out a
registration email. This screen produces errors as expected. For
example if I use an existing email, I'll get proper errors:
However the by "sign in" screen I mean the main login screen. Here is
a screen shot of it - note here I entered an invalid login and I'm
getting no message:
Are trying to sign in a Model from another controller and you redirect
back if login was not successful?
I don't think I'm doing anything out of the ordinary (but I'm a newb
so possibly I am?) I'm using the standard views created by Devise (I
generated them and did add one field "name")
One more thing, make sure you set the flash messages explicitly if you
are overriding default Devise controllers' actions.
I haven't overridden any of Devices controllers.
Thanks for trying to help. I'm sure it'll be something stupid.
