Mongoid creating embedded document from a view

I am trying to add a embed a Profile into a User and I keep getting this error.

Access to the collection for Profile is not allowed since it is an embedded document, please access a collection from the root document.

I am sure it's a simple problem to fix but I have no clue how to do it. I am very new with RoR so things are still a little confusing. Here is my code.


class Profile include Mongoid::Document attr_accessible :handle, :description field :handle field :description embedded_in :user end


class ProfileController < ApplicationController def create @user = current_user @profile = @user.profile.create!(params[:profile]) redirect_to dashboard_path end end


<h1>Create Profile</h1> <%= form_for [:current_user, Profile.create] do |f| %> <div class="field"> <%= f.label :handle %> <%= f.text_field :handle %> </div> <div class="field"> <%= f.label :description %> <%= f.text_area:description %> </div> <p class="button"><%= f.submit %></p> <% end %>

-------------Problems Reply------------

You cannot use Profile.create in your views.html.erb because Profile is embedded in a user. So you need to do something like current_user.build_profile

<%= form_for [:current_user, current_user.build_profile] do |f| %>

should work


@user = current_user
@profile =[:profile])
@user.profile = @profile
# or
