Chapter 5 read text & checkbox: a stopper!
My templates won't come up properly. The input form is adding extra characters to the URL query like this:
Instead of /look/at being passed, it is passing %5Clook/%5Cat and of course the controller can't find that template. If I enter /look/at manually in the url, it returns the template with the correct response.
I am running Mandrake 10.2, and the "hello" example worked but these aren't working. I have checked the typing very carefully, and posted requests for assistance on the RonR forums which resulted in a. a suggestion that there was a character escaping problem of unknown source and b. maybe I am running the wrong version of Ruby or Rails.
My Ruby is 1.8.2 which this book says is acceptable, and my Rails is 1.8.6 which should the latest.
Thanks much for any assistance. I am kind of stuck here until I can resolve such an elementary problem.
