I am new at RoR and don't really have much of a programming background.
I would like to know how to install a plugin.
For example, I'ev downloaded the upload_column0.2.1.zip file from ruby
forge and placed in in my vendors/plugins folder. Now what??
Any help will be appreciated.
Usually you install plugins by either the script/plugin command or by using piston.
But a Rails plugin is really just a subfolder to vendor/plugins conforming to a set of conventions. As such you should be able to install a plugin from a zipfile by unzipping it to a folder below vendor/plugins
