Re: [ruby-81] Problem upgrading to asset pipeline

That is most excellent news! You'll be receiving my invoice shortly :)

I'm going to get on a soap box here, especially after how long it took us to work through these woes. I really really hate the inconsistency the asset_pipeline instills.  If you want to just 'require_tree' to get all of your files in whatever order, along with any new files that appear over time -- sure no problem -- but if you want to add something new, like a  JS file to your pipeline precompile besides the default applicaion.js (in the case you want page specific JS files as has always been my preference) . noo, you must add a line to your application.rb to tell it to pre-load that guy.

Ah well - glad it took you less time to get this one ironed out :)

Got it! Thanks to everyone for your help and especially the key comment from Billy:

"Can you try to add in your CSS/JS files one by one to see if its an ordering problem with require tree/self ?"

I turned out to be both an ordering problem and an inclusion problem. I had a bunch of stuff in the /stylesheets directory which I wasn't using but which was all included with the require_tree command.

Once I included only the stuff I had been using in the order that I had been using there was still one problem with the display of links (link_to) showing not only the link text but also the link address. I solved that by removing the blueprint/print.css file which I had been using with no problems.

So... problem solved. You can see a more detailed writeup at my blog: if you're interested.

Thank you all very much!!! Couldn't have done it so soon without your help.
