Noobie question I'm sure...
I'm trying to pass a session value to a database field 'user' when the
user creates a new blog entry. The session value is created when the
user logs on to the site. I have this in the view to create a new
<%= f.text_field :user, :value => session[:name], :disabled => true
but it fails validation when I create the entry
(validates_presence_of :user). Is there a way for me to store the
session value into my database field 'user' when the user creates the
new entry (and prevent the user from manipulating the value)?
