No method Error!

I am getting a new method error for the attr_accessible part, I did do the RVM thing to 1.9.3. However, I did have to add the attr_accessible part in. This is the error.


Then here is my code to the user.RB file.

class User < ActiveRecord::Base # Include default devise modules. Others available are: # :confirmable, :lockable, :timeoutable and :omniauthable devise :database_authenticatable, :registerable, :recoverable, :rememberable, :trackable, :validatable

attr_accessible :first_name, :last_name, :profile_name

Are you using Rails > 4.0?

From the Rails Guides:

Rails 4.0 has removed attr_accessible and attr_protected feature in favor of Strong Parameters. You can use the Protected Attributes gem for a smooth upgrade path.

Thanks, I'll let you know if this works!

Edit: It works!

Not enough information. What version of Rails? What does this relate to (course? video?).
