    I have Rails 2.2.2 and 2.3.2 installed as gems. I attached a simple app that has a Post model and written_on date field. I was unable to reproduce your error by adding the :discard_day => true option to the DateHelper method. I tried the create and edit forms, and tried with Rails 2.3.2 and 2.2.2.

    Hi i have checked in your application helper is working fine, but its not displaying the prompt message
    <%= f.date_select :created_at,:discard_day => true,:prompt=>{:month=>'Day'} %>

    Hello. Is the :prompt option a separate issue from the original bug you filed? If so I think it would probably be best to close this one and post a more specific bug.

    Yes :prompt option is a separate issue.

    I wasn't able to duplicate this issue either.

    ➜  code  rails -v
    Rails 2.3.5
    ➜  code  rails date_select
    ➜  code  cd date_select 
    ➜  date_select  script/generate model post written_on:date
    ➜  date_select  rake db:migrate
    ➜  date_select  script/generate controller posts new 
    ➜  date_select  script/server
    class PostsController < ApplicationController
      def new
        @post =
    <% form_for @post do |post| %>
      <%= post.date_select :written_on, :discard_day => true %>
    <% end %>


    <%= date_select("post", "written_on", :discard_day => true) %>

    I think this ticket can be marked as invalid, or resolved if it turns out the issue existed in previous versions.
