#model (idea 100% stolen from ryanb)
def author_tokens=(ids)
ids.gsub!(/CREATE_(.+?)_END/) do
Author.create!(:name => $1).id
end
self.author_ids = ids.split(",")
end
# jquery.tokeninput.js
# remove .toLowerCase() (twice), otherwise you won't be able to add new items with capitals...
# also change this line:
# var this_token = $("<li><p>"+ value +"</p> </li>")
# to this:
# var this_token = $("<li><p>"+ value.replace('Add: ', '') +"</p> </li>")
# controller
