Can't load plugin

I can tell already that this will be dumb question :slight_smile:

I am trying to install the paperclip plugin. I don’t know why, but it
doesn’t seem to install like other rails plugins using the script/plugin
install. So instead I downloaded it into the vendor/gems folder (which
I created before) and tried to load the plugin with the following line
in the environment.rb file:

config.load_paths << “#{RAILS_ROOT}/vendor/gems/paperclip”

After restarting the server I get an error that seems to imply that the
plugin was not loaded, as it says that the one of the methods supplied
by the paperclip plugin does not exist.
**
undefined method `has_attached_file’ for #Class:0x236b404
**

Am I loading the plugin correctly?

Thanks for the help

The plugin

maybe ‘require ‘paperclip’’?

Probably not. It’s going to want it’s init.rb file loaded. It looks
like you just be able to svn export it into vendor/plugins though.

If I would have just put the plugin into the normal plugin dir all would
have worked, which it is now. It was the fact that it never installed
like a plugin I figured I had to do things differently :slight_smile:

Thanks for the help.
