Error when output has a period (".") in the name

Hi all,

Hopefully this is easy for you guys. I’m trying to output a list of
usernames and everything has been working well. However, when I added a
user with a period in their username it generates this error. If I
rename the user to “Tom_Dixon” it works fine, but “Tom.Dixon” fails.

Any clue how to get this to work?


user_url failed to generate from {:controller=>“users”, :action=>“show”,
:id=>#<User id: 96, username: “Tom.Dixon” …

The code is your standard rails link_to:

<%#= link_to h(user.username), user_path(user) %> <%#= link_to 'Edit', edit_user_path(user) %> <%#= link_to 'Remove', user, :confirm => 'Are you sure?', :method => :delete %>

Any help is appreciated!


Why are you calling user_path(user) instead of just the id?
