You called render with invalid options : {:text=>"howdy"}, nil

I just "upgraded" to Rails 2.2.2.

In environment, I've set: RAILS_GEM_VERSION = '2.2.2' unless defined? RAILS_GEM_VERSION

In development.rb and production.rb I've commented out: #config.action_view.cache_template_extensions = false

I now get an error: You called render with invalid options : {:text=>"howdy"}, nil

The data within the curlies will be appropriate to the page. It's usually something like: {:layout=>true, :file=>"page/list"}, nil

In the :text example, I'm trying to isolate the controller and the views out of the picture and render some simple text to the screen using:   def mypage     render(:text=>"howdy")   end

It doesn't matter whether I'm running Apache/mod_rails or Mongrel, I get the same error. Must be something basic, but there isn't much on the web about it. Any ideas will be appreciated.

Random guess: you've got a plugin that was overriding some action controller internals and those internals have changed.


As Fred said, what plugins/gems are you using?

Thanks everyone for responding. I thought I had posted the answer somewhere, but I don't see it here. The problem is with the Textmate Footnotes plugin as described here:

which will take you here: script/plugin install git://
