Response to: Update not working

If you are running on Windows, you could try using Instant Rails ( It contains the cookbook app as a preinstalled sample application, which should just work out-of-the-box.

Once you have something working, then you can compare against what's not working.

    I experienced "update not working" and traced
    it to the case of the "name" attribute on the
    input tags in edit.rhtml.

    That is, I finally made it work by changing
    recipe[category_id] to Recipe[category_id].
    I gather that the posted "name" attribute
    is used as the model name, which is capitalized
    in the command "ruby script\generate model Recipe"

    Just reporting empirical results!

      I posted too soon; I gathered wrong.
      The real problem was that I used
      "scaffold :Recipe" in the controller,
      instead of "scaffold :recipe", as
      the article prescribed.

      "Never mind"
