Trouble with rspec and FactoryGirl Sequence

I’m following Michael H.'s Ruby on Rails 3 Tutorial but I’m using
Rails 3.2.8 and FactoryGirl 4.2.0 and rspec 2.14.1 I’m in chapter 10
trying to generate tests for pagination (using will_paginate 3.2.5 which
works fine in dev)

I can get FactoryGirl to test just fine if I don’t use Sequence but I
can’t seem to figure out the correct syntax to test pagination using
sequence. Very new to Ruby.

Here’s what my factories.rb looks like:
FactoryGirl.define do
factory :user do
name “John S.”
sequence :email do |n|
“person-#{n}@factory.com
end
password “foobar”
password_confirmation “foobar”
end
end

Here’s the relevant section of my users_controller_spec.rb:
require ‘spec_helper’
describe UsersController do
.
.
describe “GET ‘index’” do
.
.
describe “for signed-in users” do
before(:each) do
@user = test_sign_in(FactoryGirl.create(:user))
second = FactoryGirl.create(:user,
:email => “[email protected]”)
third = FactoryGirl.create(:user,
:email => “[email protected]”)
@users = [@user, second, third]
30.times do
@users << FactoryGirl.create(:user,
:email => FactoryGirl.generate(:email))
end
end

  it "should have the right title" do
    get :index
    response.should have_selector("title", :content => "All users")
  end
  .
  .

All my “get :index” tests are failing in the “for signed-in users” block
fail. They don’t fail if I just manually create a list of 30 users so
something is wrong with how I am trying to sequence or generate.

Thanks for helping this newb…

Don’t do this, for a tutorial always use exactly the version of
everything that the tutorial expects, otherwise you never know why
things are not working correctly. You never know whether it is
because you have mis-typed something from the tutorial or just a
difference because of the different versions. Why can you not use the
expected versions?
