Can't find the partial

I have a simple ajax request that should return a partial, but for some
reason I am continually told that it is not there. I have modified the
partial location to other partials that do work fine elsewhere and it
still tells me that it can’t find those files.

Here is the code:

class Admin::ContentPhotosController < ApplicationController

def new
respond_to do |format|
format.js { render :partial => “admin/content_photos/form” }
end
end

end

Here is some console output showing that the file exists

$ ls app/views/admin/content_photos/
_form.html.haml index.html.haml new.html.haml

Here is the error message if when I access
http://localhost:3000/admin/content_photos/new.js

Couldn’t find template file for admin/content_photos/_form

Help is appreciated.

Unfortunately, that doesn’t seem to work either. I get the same error
message:

ActionView::ActionViewError (Couldn’t find template file for
admin/content_photos/_form in
["/Users/chris/Documents/Projects/Rails/cms/app/views"]):

I wasn’t aware that you could render the partials using that path, so
thanks for that :slight_smile:

message:

Try calling your partial _form.js.haml.

I didn’t want to call it _form.js.haml since it is rendered on a normal
http request, but renaming it to _form.haml did the trick, which makes
perfect sense.

Thanks David.
