I used hostgator's cpanel web interface to install it. There is no vendor/extensions/forms directory.
So I ran "gem install radiant-forms-extension"; it seemed to work: [lind...@gator634 ~/rails_apps/radiant]$ gem install radiant-forms-extension Successfully installed radiant-forms-extension-2.0.1 1 gem installed Installing ri documentation for radiant-forms-extension-2.0.1... Installing RDoc documentation for radiant-forms-extension-2.0.1... But there's still no forms directory anywhere. [lind...@gator634 ~/rails_apps/radiant]$ find / -name forms /home/lindsay/ruby/gems/gems/radiant-forms-extension-2.0.1/spec/lib/forms /home/lindsay/ruby/gems/gems/radiant-forms-extension-2.0.1/app/views/admin/forms /home/lindsay/ruby/gems/gems/radiant-forms-extension-2.0.1/lib/forms /home/lindsay/ruby/gems/doc/radiant-forms-extension-2.0.1/rdoc/files/lib/forms /usr/lib/ruby/gems/1.8/doc/radiant-forms-extension-2.0.1/rdoc/files/lib/forms /usr/lib/ruby/gems/1.8/gems/radiant-forms-extension-2.0.1/spec/lib/forms /usr/lib/ruby/gems/1.8/gems/radiant-forms-extension-2.0.1/lib/forms /usr/lib/ruby/gems/1.8/gems/radiant-forms-extension-2.0.1/app/views/admin/forms Is it supposed to be "gems/gems" above (line 2)? Is it using the wrong directory? radiant starts from /home/lindsay/rails_apps/radiant. Maybe I need to tweak this line in my config/environment.rb BEFORE I run gem install? (It's commented out at present.) #ENV['GEM_PATH'] = '/home/lindsay/ruby/gems:/usr/lib/ruby/gems/1.8' Thanks for any advice...
