I don’t know if what I am about to describe is a Rails, HTML, browser of some other issue.
problem: Sometimes the input fields of the following form are pre-filled with things I did not set … like vales from a previous, uh,
Here’s my .erb code taken - more-or-less - from devise-4.3.0/lib/generators/templates/simple_form_for/registrations/new.html.erb
<%= form_for(resource, as: resource_name, url: registration_path(resource_name)) do |f| %>
<%= devise_error_messages! %>
<%= f.password_field :password, required: true, autocomplete: "off" %>
<%= f.password_field :password_confirmation, required: true, autocomplete: "off" %>
<%= render “devise/shared/links” %>
Note, for instance,
<%= f.text_field :name, value: "This is silly" %>
Sometimes the input value is “This is silly” and sometimes it’s a value a user previously entered.
How do I force the value “This is silly” every time the user refreshes the screen?
