I did a slight variation of this project, and I was able to create new records (that persisted), the only problem is that now I pushed the app to heroku, records no longer persist.
It was working fine locally, so either it has something to do with precompiled assets, or there's some strange discrepancy when switching from sqlite to postgres.
