For an ecommerce application, I am trying to create an html email that
summarizes a customers order. (This is very similar to the Agile Rails
book page 417.) My templates are in two directories.


sent.rhtml needs to render the _order_summary.rhtml partial which
needs to render the _line_item.rhtml summary.

If I do the following in sent.rhtml I get an error that Rails can't
find a partial named order_summary


I can make Rails find the partial if I do


but now the order_summary partial cannot find the line_item partial.

I assume now I have to change the render partial calls in
order_summary to have complete, explicit paths. This seems like a bit
of a kludge. Is there a way to avoid going through all my partial
calls in order_summary and giving every render partial an explicit

It is even worse than this. If I do add absolute paths for all the
partials. The rails templates cannot find the helper functions. There
must be a known solution for this problem. I hope!
