Could you include the code for your status controller, model, and the form view?

class StatusesController < ApplicationController before_action :set_status, only: [:show, :edit, :update, :destroy]

# GET /statuses # GET /statuses.json def index @statuses = Status.all end

# GET /statuses/1 # GET /statuses/1.json def show end

# GET /statuses/new def new @status = Status.new end

# GET /statuses/1/edit def edit end

# POST /statuses # POST /statuses.json def create @status = Status.new(status_params)

respond_to do |format|
  if @status.save
    format.html { redirect_to @status, notice: 'Status was successfully created.' }
    format.json { render action: 'show', status: :created, location: @status }
  else
    format.html { render action: 'new' }
    format.json { render json: @status.errors, status: :unprocessable_entity }
  end
end

end

# PATCH/PUT /statuses/1 # PATCH/PUT /statuses/1.json def update respond_to do |format| if @status.update(status_params) format.html { redirect_to @status, notice: 'Status was successfully updated.' } format.json { head :no_content } else format.html { render action: 'edit' } format.json { render json: @status.errors, status: :unprocessable_entity } end end end

# DELETE /statuses/1 # DELETE /statuses/1.json def destroy @status.destroy respond_to do |format| format.html { redirect_to statuses_url } format.json { head :no_content } end end

private # Use callbacks to share common setup or constraints between actions. def set_status @status = Status.find(params[:id]) end

# Never trust parameters from the scary internet, only allow the white list through.
def status_params
  params.require(:status).permit(:name, :content)
end

end


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

Setup accesible (or protected) attributes for your model

attr_accessible :email, :password, :password_confirmation, :remember_me, :first_name, :last_name, :profile_name

end


<%= form_for(@status) do |f| %> <% if @status.errors.any? %> <div id="error_explanation"> <h2><%= pluralize(@status.errors.count, "error") %> prohibited this status from being saved:</h2>

  <ul>
  <% @status.errors.full_messages.each do |msg| %>
    <li><%= msg %></li>
  <% end %>
  </ul>
</div>

<% end %>

<div class="field"> <%= f.label :name %><br> <%= f.text_field :name %> </div> <div class="field"> <%= f.label :content %><br> <%= f.text_area :content %> </div> <div class="actions"> <%= f.submit %> </div> <% end %>

Thanks for the help in advance :)
