Routing Error

I have a problem with my routing. When a user performs an illegal
checkout action (end time < start time) it should route back to to the
'checkout' action. However, it is instead going to the 'edit' action.

Let me know if there is something I forgot to include.

Thanks

I think the issue is that you have a general route to the checkout
controller and then you have a map.checkout route that is after the
map.resources :checkout route. so when you use checkout_path you will
get the edit task and not the checkout "route" that you have setup...

Try changing map.checkout to map.checkout-something-else and see if
that fixes the issue...

You were on the right track. What I had not realized was that
map.resources :controller generates the routes that I was seeing. I
moved my map.checkout action to the top of the list and it now properly
calls the checkout controller's update function!

I was mistaken, I had changed how the Labs update action behaved. I'm
still having the same problem and I've changed all the routes around.
