Subject:   Save yourself some frustration -- use this edit.rhtml

Many thanks to everyone for their constructive feedback. I've made a few suggested changes to "edit.rhtml" (Figure 51) that should make the tutorial work more smoothly for everyone. I have submitted this to my editor to have the article updated. Unfortunately, my editor is on vacation until sometime next week and I'm sure that when he gets back he'll be swamped with catching up.

So, I'm posting the revised edit.rhtml here to help those of you who can't wait.

<title>Edit Recipe</title>
<h1>Edit Recipe</h1>

<form action="../update/<%= @recipe.id %>" method="POST">
<input id="recipe_id" name="recipe[id]" size="30"
type="hidden" value="<%= @recipe.id %>" />


<input id="recipe_title" name="recipe[title]" size="30"
type="text" value="<%= @recipe.title %>" />


<input id="recipe_description" name="recipe[description]"
size="30" type="text"
value="<%= @recipe.description %>" />


<select name="recipe[category_id]">
<% @categories.each do |category| %>
<option value="<%= category.id %>"
<%= ' selected' if category.id == @recipe.category_id %>>
<%= category.name %>
<% end %>


<textarea cols="40" id="recipe_instructions"
rows="20" wrap="virtual">
<%= @recipe.instructions %>

<input type="submit" value="Update" />

(/recipe/show/<%= @recipe.id %>) |

    Hmmm.... it seems that posting HTML here is a little bit tricky. It pretty much came out ok above, but everywhere you see bold text ("Title", "Description", "Category", "Instructions"), that text should be surrounded by paragraph and bold tags.
