Very odd all links show href in parentheses

using 3.1.0.rc5 (though same thing happened on rc4), asset pipeline is
loaded with blueprint css (I just dumped it all into a sub-directory and
loaded it in the manifest).
All of my show something like (href)… so for <a
href"/my/page">woot it renders woot (/my/page)…

Anybody know WTH? Its gotta have something to do with blueprint, right?
I
thought it may be that “button as icons” plugin, though I deleted that
out
and restarted the server (thinking that sprockets does some caching or
something) and nada.

Did you mean…

woot

or did you really have

<a href"/my/page">woot

Comment the part where you include the application.css in your
application.html.erb.
I had the same problem, as I was also using blueprint-css.
Hope it helps.

Yeah…typo on my part (links are naturally auto-generated and fine)…

Its deffinetly blueprint.css… I moved it out to
vendor/assets/stylesheets
though I’m at a loss on how to “require” it… I thought sprockets has
that
in its load path (according to
http://ryanbigg.com/guides/asset_pipeline.html) though it doesn’t seem
to be
picking up anything there… (though my links are fine without blueprint
there :slight_smile:

Wah, wah, wah, wah…
Apperently its a bug with the print.css:

… huh… oh well. I’m still a little puzzled as to the sprockets
load
path dealie…
I would think that anything in app/assets/** is supposed to be there IF
it
requires processing (.coffee, .scss, .erb). Though I couldn’t find any
resources out there on how to manage the manifest files to load the
static
asset files in lib/assets and vendor/assets.
