Rails 2.0

software development



Rails on Dreamhost is at version 2.0.2. I am getting errors such as (in my production log):

ActionView::TemplateError (undefined method `start_form_tag’ for #ActionView::Base:0x410bfbf8) on line #10 of account/edit.rhtml:

I now start_form_tag is deprecated, but have they been eliminated completely from Rails 2.x.x? If not, is there a way to avoid these errors (which are not warnings, but are fatal. I am in production mode, and this is rather problematic.

You probably just want to freeze your rails to an older version. This will probably fix the problem you’re having with deprecated functions and you’ll be free from problems whenever DH decided to update Rails again.
