Did not [2] help? For me it was linked to by the second result in
google (the first was your question itself).

There’s one update to these links. These links tell you to add your attribute (in your case, :username) to attr_accessible in the model user.rb. Devise has be re-written since these links were written to use strong parameters. Instead of adding the attr_accessible line to your model, you need to create a custom controller which is a bit of work. Following the example of these links, to add the attribute :username to the model users, you would add the following users_controller.rb:

class UsersController < Devise::RegistrationsController

private

def sign_up_params

params.require(:user).permit(:username, :email, :password, :password_confirmation)

end

def account_update_params

params.require(:user).permit(:username, :email, :password, :password_confirmation, :current_password)

end

end

Note that the controller inherits from Devise::RegistrationsController, not ApplicationController.

You will then need to change your routes in config/routes.rb by adding the following lines:

devise_for :users, :controllers => { :registrations => “users” }

devise_scope :user do

resources :users

end

This is, obviously, considerable more work but will be necessary going forward with strong parameters.

The other steps in the links provided still apply.

That is good to know, thanks Mike.
