updated_at not updating....

How strange? I have a model that has updated_at as a "magic" field in
the database. But it isn't updating unless I update it manually.

Doing a google search, I saw someone else having a similar problem
that was using one of the acts_as_taggable plugins.

I am using acts_as_taggable_on_steroids AND betternestedset in this model

Any suggestions would be helpful

Thanks!

Rails 2.0.2
From schema.rb, the affected model:
create_table "tasks", :force => true do |t|
    t.string "description"
    t.boolean "done"
    t.datetime "created_at"
    t.datetime "updated_at"
    t.integer "lft"
    t.integer "rgt"
    t.integer "parent_id"
    t.text "notes"
    t.integer "user_id"
  end

Try taking off the two plugins to the model, and see if that affects
it (just test real quick in script/console).

My guess is one, or both, of these plugins (or you) overrode the
default AR "update" method with their own and did not include the
updated_at magic. At worst, you can always add a before_save callback
that sets the field manually.

Your guess was correct. It is the acts_as_nested_set
(betternestedset) plugin. Thanks for your help!!
