Hi everyone, I'm a rails & ruby nuby, and this is my first post to the list. Here's my environment in case it helps diagnose my problem: Ruby version 1.8.4 (powerpc-darwin8.6.0) RubyGems version 0.8.11 Rails version 1.1.2 Active Record version 1.14.2 Action Pack version 1.12.1 Action Web Service version 1.1.2 Action Mailer version 1.2.1 Active Support version 1.3.1 I did "rails myapp" and inserted "scaffold :foo" into the controllers, which worked fine but I wanted to have the scaffold code generated so I could see it and tweak it. So I did a "script/generate scaffold foo" and it generated new views and controllers with scaffolding in them, but now the controllers and views are all pluralized: my user controller became users, my tag controller became tags, etc. So looking at my file tree I wound up with two files names tag_controller.rb & tags_controller.rb - inside the first line says "TagsController" not "TagController" like when rails does it. Is this a bug? Why would the generate script pluralize things just because I want the scaffolding code inserted? Is this a problem- will I wind up with other problems because my controllers/views/who-knows-what-else are plural now? Every code example I've read shows the controllers all being in the singular. Any advice is appreciated! Thanks, -Jason

When you "scaffold" an item, the URL will be singular. When you generate the scaffold code, it will be in the plural. In fact, you will find that both work fine. For example, you could do: http://app/item #this will use the default scaffold or http://app/items #this will use the generated code and changes made to the generated code will show here Hope this helps. RoR has a seemingly esoteric naming convention, which makes life a lot easier when you get used to it :) Cheers Mohit.

You can control this behavior by changing your generate command by using the syntax script/generate scaffold Model controller e.g., script/generate scaffold Item item script/generate scaffold Product admin
