Something really simple doesn't seem to be happening for me.
I have a class called User, I'd like to set a property called "role" at
the time the new form is called. In users_controller I have the
@user = new User
@user.role = "Non-Admin"
by the time the form posts to the create method, the @user.role is nil.
I tried passing it through via a hidden_field_tag like this:
hidden_field_tag :role, @user.role
but that doesn't seem to worth either.
