Is there a way of discounting certain fields in the drop down as i have a lot of foreign keys in the table that I want to search on?
maybe a bit off subject but i am using omniauth to collect linked in profile data and am a bit stuck when it comes to getting info outside the - raise request.env["omniauth.auth"].to_yaml
I am trying to gain as much info as possible about signed in users such as past positions and location
here is the current user.rb save/create code
where(auth.slice(:provider, :uid)).first_or_initialize.tap do |user|
user.provider = auth.provider
user.uid = auth.uid
user.name = auth.info.name
user.first_name = auth.info.first_name
user.last_name = auth.info.last_name
user.image = auth.info.image
user.industry = auth.info.industry
user.current_job_title = auth.info.headline
user.pub_profile = auth.info.urls.public_profile
#user.interests = auth.info.interests
any help would be appreciated
ps. i have had a look at this link but not sure how to go about getting the values into the db - [https://developer.linkedin.com/documents/profile-fields#profile]
This is a great little gem to see what overheads you are getting in your app due to not slim lining your SQL statements +1
So how would i go about redirecting a new user to a profile model so that they could fill in extra details about themselves?
Thanks Brian, will give it a shot.
What kind of cost could I expect for a small site with say between 100 and 500 hits per day? Would it work out cheaper than a linode vps in this case?
Thanks for that Mike, works a treat :)
Is there any way i could use a combination of two fields to use the Slug?
for instance I have
friendly_id :lname, :use => :slugged
and would like to add the first name of the user field - :fname to make it more unique.
