Hello everyone! I'm trying to create an after filter for all my actions in all controllers. I put it in application controller (application.rb). class ApplicationController < ActionController::Base after_filter :tidyit def tidyit xxxx # syntax error - intentionally end end I have a Example (example_controller.rb) controller with index action. class ExampleController < ActionController::Base def index @result = "Hello, world!" end end When I try to access server:3000/example/index I see my hello world string. But it should be compile error (see "xxxx" in filter code). No matter what I do inside the filter, this filter is not applied at all! I'm very puzzled. I do restart webrick after modifications to the controllers. ruby 1.8.4 (2005-12-24) [i686-linux] rails 1.0.0 -- olegf

xxxx is undefined, so that method is probably just returning nil?

No, this xxxx was just my last try. I can place anything in this method, and it is still ignored. Very strange :|
