I have been working on section 8.1 and can’t seem to get the default route to work. root ‘store#index’, as: ‘store’. I can get it to work root to: ‘store#index’ which led me to believe I had the wrong versions of the beta but rails -v yields Rails 4.0.0.beta1 which is what the book was written around I believe. Am I missing something simple here?
The latest version of the book uses Rails 4.0.0.rc1 and this looks like one of the small changes between rc1 and the beta.
There’s some guidance in the preface about updating between the beta and rc1.
Ageed there are some subtle changes in .rc1 that are not in beta1
