Hi there, why do I get the error... undefined method `format_phone_number_for' for #<User::MailingsController:0xb70aae58> ... in this situation: controllers/user/mailings_controller.rb: ======================================== class User::MailingsController < ApplicationController def whatever [...] [...] format_phone_number_for(@somebody) # <- why is this "undefined" ? [...] end end helpers/phonenumber_helper.rb: ============================== module PhonenumberHelper def format_phone_number_for(parent) [...] end end And what do I have to do to have this method available in this controller? (I have already tried by including "helper PhonenumberHelper" in the controller) Thanks for your help! Tom

Did you try like include PhonenumberHelper in mailings_controller.rb and is phonenumber_helper.rb in app/helpers? Sijo

hello im very new to rails but i "think" it should go in the mailings_helper instead of the phonenumber_helper or there should be an application_helper which i think is universal

Thanks for your replies! @ Sijo: The problem was resolved by adding "include PhonenumberHelper" in the controller, as you have suggested (I was sure I had done that before...) @ bushfreakz: Any helpers in app/helpers are only available to views, by default. If you have "helper :all" in ApplicationController, all helpers in app/helpers are available to all *views* only.
