Custom Error Message

This plugin gives you the option to not have your custom validation error message prefixed with the attribute name.

Rails 3 and Ruby 1.9

Custom Error Message is Rails 3 and Ruby 1.9 compatible

Usage

Sometimes generated error messages don't make sense.

validates_acceptance_of :accepted_terms, :message => 'Please accept the terms of service'

This generates the error message:

Accepted terms Please accept the terms of service

This plugin uses the carat (^) to omit the name of the attribute from error messages:

validates_acceptance_of :accepted_terms, :message => '^Please accept the terms of service'

This now generates:

Please accept the terms of service
