undefined local variable or method `include_tiny_mce_if_needed'

Reported by Rene Madsen | August 18th, 2009 @ 11:36 PM

Hi, I'm have a project, where I have this line included in application.html.haml as described on http://github.com/kete/tiny_mce/tree/master step 3.

It all works fine in development, but in test and production it does not work. I get this error:

ActionView::TemplateError (undefined local variable or method `include_tiny_mce_if_needed' for #<ActionView::Base:0x7fbb18ea12a0>) on line \#8 of app/views/layouts/application.html.haml:

Any suggestions to, what to try.

    after doing exactly what is mentioned in the install howto, I get an error that is different but I think has to do with the same issue:

    undefined method `development?' for "development":String

    this happens when i add the line

    <%= include_tiny_mce_if_needed %>

    i figured out that it might have to do with <%= javascript_include_tag :all %> and I noticed that when I restart my server, a tinymce folder is created in public/javascripts, which is not loaded in my head tag when i drop the if_needed line in favor of include :all.

    Hope that helps,

    thanks kieran - this works perfectly. and you are right - this was rails 2.1.0-4 (ubuntu), but with this modification, it works out nicely ;)

    I have this problem, any clues?

    I am using 2.3.5, all works fine in dev but in staging/prod it gives the error. I am using 0.1.1.
