Hello fellow brethren,

i can’t seem to get sessions to work. As it is more or less one function with no setup required i am kind of stumped what could cause this. Im attaching the code snippet from the book. It always is rescued and never recovers the session.

I tried it with 3 different browsers with everything enabled i could possibly find (cookies, javascript, …) and failed each time.

module CurrentCart extend ActiveSupport::Concern


	def set_cart
		@cart = Cart.find(session[:card_id])
	rescue ActiveRecord::RecordNotFound
		@cart = Cart.create
		session[:cart_id] =

Any further guidance would be much appreciated, because it is driving me seriously insane :)

Kind Regards, Matthias Weidemann

I am having the same issues. Instead of remaining in the same session, I continue to create a new cart for each item

Same problem here in Firefox and Safari. I get a new cart each time I click Add to Cart.

Found my error:

session[:cart_id] = was

session[:cart_id] = @cart_id
