I am getting the error
undefined method `strftime' for "2013-03-06":String
when trying to display a date normally (June Sunday 3, 2013 or something similar) from the string 2013-03-06 using strftime.
The line that does this in my index.html.erb and looks like this
<td><%= task.duedate.strftime("%B %e, %Y") %></td>
It looks like your duedate is a string, when strftime is a method for Time/Date class. You can try this:
Date.parse(task.duedate).strftime("%B %e, %Y")
