undefined method `protect_against_forgery?' for #<ActionView::Base:0x10ad1a500>

Reported by David Chelimsky | May 26th, 2010 @ 07:08 AM

In a test for the new.html.erb template generated in the scaffold generator, rendering the template results in undefined method 'protect_against_forgery?'.

This is happening because new.html.erb renders _form.html.erb, which calls form_for, which calls FormTagHelper#extra_tags_for_form, which calls protect_from_forgery?, which is not defined in the scope in which it is being called.

I've got a patch that fixes this:

Admittedly this is not perfect, but it does solve this problem without bleeding into other areas of the system.
