I am writing my 1st extension.. also new to rails and ruby.. oh why not... In the newext_tags.rb module I am trying to call a method from a newext.rb Class Newext The method cannot be found. If I move the Class definition at then end of the module NewextTags it works. I am using the rake command: rake radiant:extensions:newext:update after each update to the code Also restarting the web server each time.

Hi Bartee (or Lamar?), Where are the files newext_tags.rb and newext.rb located? When you declare methods in newext.rb (which should be located somewhere in \lib) you should declare them as class methods (def self.my_method) to be able to call them like this with Newext.my_method. You don't need to use the rake update command, it just copies the files from your extension's \public folder to the Radiant application's \public folder, which is not what you want at this point. Restarting the web server is necessary, though. Manuel
