I may just be stupid, but why can I not get this function to work from a view. Here is what I am doing:

<%= textilize_without_paragraph(todo.description) %>

All I get is an error saying:

uninitialized constant ActionView::Helpers::TextHelper::RedCloth

I have double and triple checked that I have the gem installed, what else can I do?

    • Tag changed from 4.1.9, textilize_without_paragraph to 4.1.9, rails, textilize_without_paragraph
    • State changed from “new” to “open”

    I can't replicate it. Please do the following:

    1.) Look in vendor/ to see if you have redcloth in there. 2.) Run ./script/about and tell me what you get. 3.) Run ./script/console and check RedCloth::VERSION. Tell me what you get.

    • Milestone cleared.

    Need some more information or I'll have to close the ticket since I can't replicate it.

    I just had this same problem when upgrading from Rails 2.2 to 2.3.

    To fix it I just specified that my app needed RedCloth loaded in environment.rb:

    config.gem "RedCloth"

    So I don't think is was a RedCloth bug anyway.
