Partial rendering one time too many for collection


Creating a simple blog application,

I have this partial

.comment %p %b Namn: = comment.name %p %b kommentar: = comment.content %p = link_to 'Destroy Comment', [comment.post, comment], :confirm => 'Are you sure?', :method => :delete

and its called from

= render :partial => 'comment', :collection => @post.comments

it always renders the partial one time to many?


It has this form

= form_for ([@post,@post.comments.build])


As depicted in the comments of your question, the @post.comments.build is the culprit. Change it to

= form_for ([@post, @post.comments.new])

and the additional item when rendering the collection should be gone.

There is a good post about the difference of build and new here: <a href="https://stackoverflow.com/questions/4954313/build-vs-new-in-rails-3" rel="nofollow">Build vs new in Rails 3</a>
