Associations named using a string cannot be included in a scope

If you defined your association via

class Article belongs_to "category" end

and you try

Article.scoped(:include => :category)

you will get an error message

in `preload_one_association': Association named 'category' was not found; perhaps you misspelled it? (ActiveRecord::ConfigurationError)


Always define your assocations via symbol

class Article belongs_to :category end

Does your version of Ruby on Rails still receive security updates?
Rails LTS provides security patches for old versions of Ruby on Rails (3.2 and 2.3).
