Implementing usernames to devise

I have followed the documentation online, however I am still struggling and I don't know where I went wrong. When I am trying to sign a user up, all I am seeing is 'please review the problems below' upon them submitting, which isn't even being displayed.The terminal also isn't saying much.

Application Controller:

class ApplicationController < ActionController::Base
protect_from_forgery with: :exception
before_action :authenticate_user!
before_action :configure_permitted_parameters, if: :devise_controller?


def configure_permitted_parameters
added_attrs = [:username, :email, :password, :password_confirmation, :remember_me]
devise_parameter_sanitizer.permit :sign_up, keys: [:username, :password]
devise_parameter_sanitizer.permit :account_update, keys: [:username, :password]


User model:

class User < ApplicationRecord
# Include default devise modules. Others available are:
# :confirmable, :lockable, :timeoutable and :omniauthable
has_many :stories
validates :username, :presence => true, :uniqueness => { :case_sensitive => false}
validates_format_of :username, with: /^[a-zA-Z0-9_\.]*$/, :multiline => true
attr_accessor :login
devise :database_authenticatable, :registerable,
:recoverable, :rememberable, :trackable, :validatable, :authentication_keys => {email: true, login: false}

def self.find_for_database_authentication(warden_conditions)
conditions = warden_conditions.dup
if login = conditions.delete(:login)
where(conditions.to_h).where(["lower(username) = :value OR lower(email) = :value", { :value => login.downcase }]).first
elsif conditions.has_key?(:username) || conditions.has_key?(:email)


In the terminal:

If you are using username instead of email as authentication key, then you must have defined:

config.authentication_keys = [:username]

- OR, you can define authentication key in model also as:

devise :database_authenticatable, :authentication_keys => [:username]

Add the following methods to model User in order to avoid validations for email:

def email_required?

def email_changed?

If you have a UNIQUE constraint over the email column, then create a migration to remove index on email column:

def change
  remove_index :users, :email
