bump (anyone able to point out why this doesn’t work below please - thanks)
solved it guys (just in case someone started to look at this)
- “self.created_by = Suberb.current_user_gregs” as the syntax worked but noting
- doh! My database column was a
datetime not a string (prior to fixing this the column was showing NULL)
I wonder whether rails should have really picked up on this error? The only way I was able to discover this was via code/db review.
