error message on the redirected page

use flash.keep to retain flash messages across multiple requests.
stick that right before your redirect.

Can you do something like

def edit
    if request.post?
       if update
          flash and redirect to show
       end
    end
end

Then put update under protected and have it return false if there's an error. That way there's no redirect when you have an error.

I'm pretty noob-ish at rails, but I like trying to respond to posts to help me learn. So if this isn't what you want, I apologize.
