Is there a general rule to work with this book that goes something like this:
When you are trying to assign an attribute the attribute MUST be assigned like this:
attr_accessible :name, :password, :password_confirmation
as an example for the creating a user in chapter 14? It would be nice to have some “official” statement by the authors that this is what is needed to get through the book without having to second guess what you are doing all the time. I am sure for some this is a “no brainer” but for me I am thinking - what am I doing setting these things to be assigned? Am I create a security issue here? If so how do I fix it? How do I assign it and then make it secure?
It would be nice.
