Hello everyone,

I was trying to install these in_place_editing and acts_as_textiled
plugins in my rails application version 2.2.2, running on windows XP
but i came across some problems when doing so.

When i was trying to install in_place_editing, using the command
ruby script/plugin install
http://svn.rubyonrails.org/rails/plugins/in_place_editing

i got the error

I tried to browse the svn repository,
http://svn.rubyonrails.org/rails/plugins/
using tortoisesvn, and i couldn't get any plugins listed in my
tortoisesvn.

When i tried to install acts_as_textiled plugin, from the repository
ruby script/plugin install
svn://errtheblog.com/svn/plugins/acts_as_textiled

i got the error
svn: Can't connect to the host 'errtheblog.com'

Has the plugins been moved to a different directory?? i believe these
are fairly popular plugins, so i hope i can get some help here.
thanks,
suman

Both have now been moved to git.

Here are installation instructions:

You can download tarballs/zip files off github.

When I try to do a "ruby script/plugin install
git://github.com/rails/in_place_editing"
on my WinXP install, I always get the message "removing: I:
\instant_rails\...\in_place_editing\.git". What do I do wrong?

You should follow the link provided by Mark Reginald  which is

Sorry about my previous post, clicked the on the 'enter' button
prematurely....

You should follow the link posted by mark reginald. And then you
should download the zip version of the plugin. After doing that you
extract the files and copy all the extracted files into the vendor/
plugins/in_place_editing folder of your rails app. You should create
the in_place_editing folder yourself.
Then you restart the server to make the changes come into effect.
