Acts_As_Ferret No Method Errors

I’ve been trying to use Acts_as_Ferret, but all I can get are no method
errors. For example, if I try in a rails console
Item.find_id_by_contents(“whatever”)
it returns “NoMethodError: undefined method `find_id_by_contents’ for
#Class:0x4943140”. I do have acts_as_ferret in my model rb file, and
the ferret gem installed.

I’m a newbie to rails. Is there a way I can check that I have aaf
installed correctly? Doing “ruby script/plugin install
svn://projects.jkraemer.net/acts_as_ferret/tags/stable/acts_as_ferret”
as most tutorials say didn’t seem to do anything or produce anything in
my vendor/plugins folder, so I downloaded a zip file from the github
site and extracted it to vendor/plugins/acts_as_ferret.

Also I find it confusing what is the “current, correct way” to install
and use aaf—is it now as an acts_as_ferret gem? And also has
find_id_by_contents now been replaced by find_with_ferret (which also
didn’t work for me), or is it vice versa?

Please help, thanks!

you can only use the aaf to search for your rails applications. you have
to run the plugin installation command while staying in the application
dir you want to install it.
