Not able to get url from uploaded image, undefined method `url' error on has_many associated model

undefined method `url' for #<GalleryPhoto:0x007f80c05a4ba8>

10:   <%= %>
11: </p>
13: <%= @gallery.gallery_photos.first.url %>
16: <%= link_to 'Edit', edit_gallery_path(@gallery) %>

I am attempting to create a photo album system in a rails app where albums are created and images are uploaded to it via paperclip. I am unable to get the .url method to work on my show page to display the image. The way it is set up is like this:

Gallery Model (has many gallery_photos)

GalleryPhotos Model(belongs_to gallery)

gallery show:

<p id="notice"><%= notice %></p>

  <b>Gallery name:</b>
  <%= @gallery.gallery_name %>

  <%= %>

<%= @gallery.gallery_photos.first.url %>

<%= link_to 'Edit', edit_gallery_path(@gallery) %> |
<%= link_to 'Back', galleries_path %>

gallery model

class Gallery < ActiveRecord::Base
    attr_accessible :date, :gallery_name, :gallery_photos_attributes
    has_many :gallery_photos, :dependent => :destroy

    accepts_nested_attributes_for :gallery_photos


gallery_photo model

class GalleryPhoto < ActiveRecord::Base
    attr_accessible :photo, :caption, :date, :gallery_id

    belongs_to :gallery

    has_attached_file :photo,:styles => { :large => "300x300<", :medium => "300x300>", :thumb => "100x100>" }, :default_url => "/images/:style/missing.png"


Gallery controller

  def new
    @gallery = # added this

  def show
    @gallery = Gallery.find(params[:id])

  def create
    @gallery =[:gallery])

    respond_to do |format|
        format.html { redirect_to @gallery, notice: 'Gallery was successfully created.' }
        format.json { render json: @gallery, status: :created, location: @gallery }
        format.html { render action: "new" }
        format.json { render json: @gallery.errors, status: :unprocessable_entity }

The table is mysql, and I am running this through a vagrant virtual system. It is inserting on new, and it is making it. On new it is inserting data into the table for the galleries and for gallery_photos. No matter what I do, I cannot get a url out of it.


From, the url method belongs to has_attached_file :photo, so the correct way to retrieve the url is
