So, I turned Prazo (deadline) back into date format rather than string. In the tarefa form, it now looks like this:
<%= f.date_field :prazo %>
And in the page, it looks like this: http://i.imgur.com/rEdLsZP.png
However, in the actual tarefas feed, the date doesn't show. When the code is this:
Prazo: <%= feed_item.prazo %>.
It just shows "Prazo:." with nothing between the text and the period.
Then I tried with strftime, like this:
Prazo: <%= feed_item.prazo.strftime("%B %e, %Y") %>.
Ran the server, the page gave me
NoMethodError in StaticPages#home
undefined method `strftime' for nil:NilClass
Meaning, it thinks feed_item.prazo is nil, even though it understood feed_item.descricao (description) just fine.
I also tried:
Prazo: <%= feed_item.prazo.to_formatted_s(:short) %>.
It gives me the same problem. Thinks it´s nil. So thats what I´m looking into right now.
About the chat, I went and signed up for gitter, but I´m not sure how it all works. I´m not a chat person. Just hit me up I guess.
