acts_as_taggable issue

This won't post with a full code paste, so I've got to link it to
another forum where I've posted it.

Can't get the acts_as_taggable plugin to play nice. Works in console,
not in teh view.

You're not showing your routes.rb, so I can't be sure, but it looks like you need to setup a route for this...

= in config/routes.rb

map.connect '/elements/tagged/:tag_name', :controller => 'elements', :action => 'tagged'

= end

Alternatively, you could use params[:id] instead of params[:tag_name] in line 4 of your controller, but changing the route will make it clearer that you're not expecting a numeric id there.

Thanks JD. I actually do have this, but I don't call the controller

  map.connect ':controller/tagged/:tag_name', :action => :tagged

Also, this could cause a lot of issue - I'm using RC1 for 1.2 and
everything is restful.

So in trying to go for semantic urls, is

not a good way to go? Here is the full routes file with all comments

ActionController::Routing::Routes.draw do |map|
  map.resources :element_types
  map.resources :elements

  map.connect ':controller/tagged/:tag_name', :action => :tagged

  map.connect '', :controller => "element"

  map.connect ':controller/service.wsdl', :action => 'wsdl'

  map.connect ':controller/:action/:id.:format'
  map.connect ':controller/:action/:id'

I appreciate the help,

AH! using the symbol for :tagged in the routes breaks it. Not sure why.
But it does. Changing the route to

map.connect ':controller/tagged/:tag_name', :action => 'tagged'

made it work

Interesting. Glad it's working for you now.
