Missing Template when testing with the Brain Buster Captcha partial


#1

When I run my functional tests, they throw an error with the following
message:

I’ve checked to make sure the partial is in the right location, it is
in this directory:

/vendor/plugins/brain_buster/views/brain_busters/_captcha.html.erb

Any ideas as to why the test can’t find the partial? It works fine
when I test it manually (via the browser).

Take off the slash?

<%= render :partial => ‘captcha’ unless action_name == ‘edit’ %>

Thanks, but unfortunately, that had no affect…have you ever run into
this kind of thing before?


#4

Just to experiment, I used this instead:

<%= render :partial => “#{RAILS_ROOT}/vendor/plugins/brain_buster/
views/brain_busters/captcha.html.erb” unless action_name == ‘edit’ %>

and now I get the following error:

ActionView::TemplateError: Called id for nil, which would mistakenly
be 4 – if you really wanted the id of nil, use object_id

I feel like after that point I’m just chasing the white rabbit, seems
that once I figure out the initial problem, things should be okay.


#5

My original suggestion was based on the error message:

ActionView::TemplateError: Missing template /_captcha.erb in view
path
app/views:test/vendor/plugins/brain_buster/views/brain_busters

The partial you called out was
render :partial => ‘/captcha’

Your new error is clearly that the @captcha instance variable has no
value in the partial. Have you tried something like:

render :partial => ‘captcha’, :object => @captcha

and then within your _captcha.html.erb template using a local variable:

<%= hidden_field_tag :captcha_id, captcha.id %>

#6

Sorry, I didn’t mean to confuse. I’d say the first error…

ActionView::TemplateError: Missing template /_captcha.erb in view
path
app/views:test/vendor/plugins/brain_buster/views/brain_busters

…is still the prominent one. I tried your suggestion and am getting
the same error. Do you have any other suggestions?

I appreciate you taking the time!

#7

I met the same problem and solved it.

When I run my functional tests, they throw an error with the following
message:

ActionView::TemplateError: Missing template /_captcha.erb in view path
app/views:test/vendor/plugins/brain_buster/views/brain_busters
On line #23 of app/views/contacts/_form.html.erb

    20:     <%= f.label :message %><br />
    21:     <%= f.text_area :message %>
    22:   </div>
    23:   <%= render :partial => '/captcha' unless action_name ==

‘edit’ %>
24:

<%= f.submit “Submit” %>

25: <% end %>

I changed single quotation to double quotation.
<%= render :partial => “captcha” %>
