Custom Error Message

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

Rails 4

This only works with Rails 4

Installation

gem 'custom_error_message', git: 'https://github.com/thethanghn/custom-err-msg.git'

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
