Stumped on routing - getting 'no route matches' error but route exists AFAIK

Stumped on this, can anyone help:

When I ask for ‘accept_invitation_url’, I get:
ActionController::RoutingError Exception: No route matches
{:controller=>“invitations”, :action=>“accept”}

However as far as I can tell it should exist. I dont get it. I have
virtually the same structure with another app and it works fine.

class InvitationsController < ApplicationController

def accept
@invitation = Invitation.find_by_token(params[:token])
end
end

MyApp::Application.routes.draw do

resources :invitations
match “/invitations/accept/:token” => “invitations#accept”, :as =>
:accept_invitation

end

A little trick is to type rake routes in your terminal to view the
routes
available.
but it seems that you should be able to call
accept_invitation_url(:token =>
“your token”)

Thanks, I had looked at rake routes before and again now… so it is
really
bizarre:

(rdb:1) accept_band_invitation_url
ActionController::RoutingError Exception: No route matches
{:controller=>“accounts”, :action=>“new”}

Yet in my rake routes

new_account GET /accounts/new(.:format)
{:action=>“new”,
:controller=>“accounts”}

accept_band_invitation /accept_band_invitation/:token(.:format)
{:controller=>“accounts”, :action=>“new”}

Guess I can just hand code the url but I hate not understanding what is
wrong.

Are you passing a :token parameter to the named route? ie.
accept_band_invitation_url(‘this-is-my-token’)
