Undefined method `stories_path'


#1

Hi,

I recieve error “undefined method `stories_path’ for
#ActionView::Base:0x995b4ac” when going to the view via
site.com/stories/new

The model is setup correctly, I can retrieve data from the db fine. I
think it might be related to the helper but I have no idea where to
start. It seems to think its failing on the first line of the view, i
belive on the ‘form_for’ method.

heres the traceback:

Is your config/routes.rb properly set up?

Aha, fixed. Yea thanks for the tip, completely overlooked mapping the
resource. The solution was:

map.resources :stories

Glad to help.

I assume you’re following the SitePoint Rails book? It’s a good one –
it helped me learn Rails when I was starting out (I got the free copy
for Rails 2.1)
