Before I dig in any further (since I have no idea where to go from

Has anyone been succcessful with 2.3.2, AS, and nested scaffolds?

I have the latest of AS and the render_component plugin via
% script/plugin install --force
-r rails-edge

I have an AS user_controller:

  active_scaffold :user do |config|

But when I click on the Portfolios link I get:

ActionView::TemplateError (undefined method `format_column' for
#<ActionView::Base:0xb67cee38>) on line #28 of vendor/plugins/

format_column is defined in:

which is included via:

which is included via:

which is included via:

so I don't understand why it's not defined when needed.

Any pointers/ideas will be much appreciated. This worked fine in

Problem was that I had installed the newest AS on top of an earlier
version, so .../frontend/default/views contained *.html.erb and
*.rhtml files.

The latter ones were being picked up instead of the former.

I deleted AS and did a fresh install and all is good.
