rspec_scaffold URL generation errors

I am using Rails 2.3.4 and when I use rspec_scaffold the code that is
generated does not work without modification. For example, the link_to
that is generated for a show
<td><%= link_to 'Show', invoice_payment %></td>

fails with "invoice_payment_url failed to generate from
{:format=>#<InvoicePayment id: 1, ...."

but if I change the code to
<td><%= link_to 'Show', :id => invoice_payment %></td>
it works fine. This seems inconsistent with the documentation.

What am I doing wrong here?

Judging from this error. It appears to me that you have a problem with
your routing. It appears to be trying to take the invoice_payment object
as the :format for the URL, which would not be correct. Make sure that
you don't have a route in your routes.rb file that is interfering with
the resource routing.

but if I change the code to
<td><%= link_to 'Show', :id => invoice_payment %></td>
it works fine. This seems inconsistent with the documentation.

This work, but is bizarre syntax. You're forcing the invoice_payment.id
into the :id parameter making it work, but the "proper" syntax when not
using the shortcut syntax would be:

<td><%= link_to 'Show', invoice_payment_path(invoice_payment) %></td>

Thanks for the quick reply Robert. The syntax that you suggest gives
the same error. The routes.rb file has the following as the first item.
  map.resources :invoice_payments

Any other ideas where the issue may be?

Of course. You must fix your routing, I think.

The routes.rb file has the following as the first item.
  map.resources :invoice_payments

That should be OK. How's your output from "rake routes"?

Have you restarted your server since putting that line in the routes
file? (If you're using Rails in development mode, this is probably not
the issue, but it's quick and easy to try.)

Best,

The problem was caused by the plugin resource_fu. I removed the plugin
