Issues with Routing

Hi,

I am trying to work through the Ruby on Rails 3 Tutorial book. I got
stuck
on chapter 5, trying to get the routes.rb file changed into:

match ‘/signup’, :to => ‘users#new’
match ‘/contact’, :to => ‘pages#contact’
match ‘/about’, :to => ‘pages#about’
match ‘/help’, :to => ‘pages#help’
root :to => ‘pages#home’

It used to be “get” instead of “match”. I have made the changes to the
other files the book recommends, but the pages have since stopped
loading
and the tests are failing.
rspec ./spec/controllers/pages_controller_spec.rb:27 # PagesController
GET
‘contact’ should be successful
rspec ./spec/controllers/pages_controller_spec.rb:31 # PagesController
GET
‘contact’ should have the right title
rspec ./spec/controllers/pages_controller_spec.rb:49 # PagesController
GET
‘help’ should be successful
rspec ./spec/controllers/pages_controller_spec.rb:53 # PagesController
GET
‘help’ should have the right title
rspec ./spec/controllers/pages_controller_spec.rb:38 # PagesController
GET
‘about’ should be successful
rspec ./spec/controllers/pages_controller_spec.rb:42 # PagesController
GET
‘about’ should have the right title
rspec ./spec/controllers/pages_controller_spec.rb:14 # PagesController
GET
‘home’ should be successful
rspec ./spec/controllers/pages_controller_spec.rb:19 # PagesController
GET
‘home’ should have the right title
rspec ./spec/controllers/users_controller_spec.rb:7 # UsersController
GET
‘new’ returns http success
rspec ./spec/controllers/users_controller_spec.rb:11 # UsersController
GET
‘new’ should have the right title
rspec ./spec/requests/layout_links_spec.rb:10 # LayoutLinks should have
a
Contact page at ‘/contact’
rspec ./spec/requests/layout_links_spec.rb:15 # LayoutLinks should have
an
About page at ‘/About’
rspec ./spec/requests/layout_links_spec.rb:20 # LayoutLinks should have
a
Help page at ‘/help’
rspec ./spec/requests/layout_links_spec.rb:5 # LayoutLinks should have a
Home page at ‘/’
rspec ./spec/requests/layout_links_spec.rb:25 # LayoutLinks should have
a
signup page at ‘/signup’

HELP!!!

You should have a more useful message than that somewhere, possibly in
log/test.log if nowhere else. Otherwise what message do you get when
you try to load one of the pages in a browser?
