'Series' Pluralization

Howdy,

I have a model I called ‘content_series’. I created it and noticed that
Rails called it ‘Sery’, so I added ‘series’ to the uncountable thing in
the config, like this:

Inflector.inflections do |inflect|

inflect.plural /^(ox)$/i, ‘\1en’

inflect.singular /^(ox)en/i, ‘\1’

inflect.irregular ‘person’, ‘people’

inflect.uncountable %w( series )

end

Everything seems to work alright except for my tests.

Both relevant test lines are ContentSeries.find(:first).

My migrations worked fine, producing a ‘content_series’ table. I cannot
figure out what the problem with my unit test is, though. It’s not
anything else referencing ‘sery’:

[email protected]:/var/www2/freepets$ grep -Ri sery * | grep -v svn | grep -v
log
vendor/plugins/acts_as_authenticated/generators/authenticated/templates/index.rhtml:Comrades
in misery___let me see;

Does anyone know what the issue is?

Thanks,
Nick Evans

I’ve fixed it. ActiveRecord, despite my instructions in the
environment.rb file, was still attempting to pluralize the table name. A
quick set_table_name ‘content_series’ in the model solved that problem.

Is this a bug, though? Should ActiveRecord be ignoring my uncountables?
