Application error (Rails) on site navigation


#1

Hi all,

Just updated to [1004] and am getting an “Application error (Rails)”
when navigating my page. Navigation of the admin interface works just
fine. After a little more investigation it seems that some themes give
errors while others do not. Azure, of course, works fine.

Thanks,

Jack

Ah… I was intending to retain backwards compatibility with themes
that worked with the old (new) API. D’you have a log trace?

Also, if the theme in question is downloadable somewhere I’ll be happy
to test against it.

I used Choco Mod: http://typogarden.com/articles/2005/12/01/choco-mod-
theme , switching back to Azure worked so it has to be the theme.

Nice, now is there an easy way to fix searching in Scribbish?

Piers was nice enough to help me out with this one. I will post the
solution below incase anyone else is having trouble.

Some themes (Scribbish in particular) were giving me Rails errors when
rendering pages. This was the the fix:

Change the line in /layouts/default.rhtml that reads

<%= render_component(:controller => ‘sidebars/sidebar’, :action =>
‘display_plugins’) %>

to read

<%= render_sidebars %>

Later,

Good question. I assume, again, that this is up to the theme
developer. It is difficult, though, to bug theme developers every time
(there are many) a theme breaks. At least the search works (even if it
is not a live search).

Later,

Jack

Errr. I haven’t touched the search…
