The sign_up parameters in Rails 4.+ can't be allowed in user.rb in models anymore.

Hi, just thought I'd let you know. I'm taking this lesson while running Ruby 2.1.2 on Rails 4.1.1. Looks like in my version, you must set these parameters to be allowed in the controller.

In application_controller.rb, type in this: def configure_permitted_parameters devise_parameter_sanitizer.for(:sign_up) { |u| u.permit(:first_name, :last_name, :email, :password, :password_confirmation) } end
