undefined method `stories_path'


I recieve error "undefined method `stories_path' for #<ActionView::Base:0x995b4ac>" when going to the view via site.com/stories/new

The model is setup correctly, I can retrieve data from the db fine. I think it might be related to the helper but I have no idea where to start. It seems to think its failing on the first line of the view, i belive on the 'form_for' method.

heres the traceback: /opt/ruby-enterprise-1.8.6-20081215/lib/ruby/gems/1.8/gems/actionpack-2.2.2/lib/action_controller/polymorphic_routes.rb:112:in `__send__' /opt/ruby-enterprise-1.8.6-20081215/lib/ruby/gems/1.8/gems/actionpack-2.2.2/lib/action_controller/polymorphic_routes.rb:112:in `polymorphic_url' /opt/ruby-enterprise-1.8.6-20081215/lib/ruby/gems/1.8/gems/actionpack-2.2.2/lib/action_controller/polymorphic_routes.rb:119:in `polymorphic_path' /opt/ruby-enterprise-1.8.6-20081215/lib/ruby/gems/1.8/gems/actionpack-2.2.2/lib/action_view/helpers/form_helper.rb:269:in `apply_form_for_options!' /opt/ruby-enterprise-1.8.6-20081215/lib/ruby/gems/1.8/gems/actionpack-2.2.2/lib/action_view/helpers/form_helper.rb:248:in `form_for' /var/www/html/railsapps/shovell/dev/app/views/stories/new.html.erb:1

Is your config/routes.rb properly set up?

Aha, fixed. Yea thanks for the tip, completely overlooked mapping the resource. The solution was:

map.resources :stories

Glad to help.

I assume you're following the SitePoint Rails book? It's a good one –
it helped me learn Rails when I was starting out (I got the free copy
for Rails 2.1)
