My app was already using will_paginate extensively and I didn’t feel like changing it all to the Kaminari which ActiveAdmin uses for pagination.
However, somehow I was able to get it to work by thumbing through this ActiveAdmin issue. I created the initializer suggested by kml with this code:
Kaminari.configure do |config|
config.page_method_name = :bonzo # :)
However, when I implemented it, the code recommended for config/initializers/active_admin.rb caused me errors so I removed it. You may find that you need this code.
I wanted to allow my users to be able to include html tags in things they posted. Originally, I was thinking that this was done as an option to the form field, but it actually is in the view where you display the user content.
In my case, I have this in the form:
<%= f.text_area :content %>
and where you want to display it, just add “.html_safe”, for example:
<%= article.content.html_safe %>
The first time I installed RoR, I used EngineYard’s wonderful RailsInstaller (railsinstaller.org), but for my upgrade, I wanted to go to 1.9.2, but they only had packages with 1.8.7 and 1.9.3. So instead, I just downloaded 1.9.2 and installed it.
One thing I was missing with the DevKit (which I found out through an error message when I was installing my gems again). So I installed it from http://rubyinstaller.org/downloads/ and then followed the directions on https://github.com/oneclick/rubyinstaller/wiki/Development-Kit. In the config.yml file generated, I just had to add where my new Ruby installation was (C:/Ruby192).
Most people who are not on Windows use RVM to manage their Ruby versions, but RVM doesn’t work for Windows. Instead there’s a great tool called Pik that does the thing. Pik allows you to switch between different Ruby versions you have on your PC. I needed this once I went to 1.9.2.
The Github page for Pik is here: https://github.com/vertiginous/pik
The Github page didn’t include a lot of details though. For more detailed instructions, I found this wonderful tutorial by Ben Hall:
