    I think is important to notice, that the current RefineryCMS only works with Rails 3.0.X and to run:

    refinerycms appname --rails-version 3.0.X

    Igmarin's right, but the Refinery CMS team is expecting to roll out the 2.0 gem within the month, this version is compatible up to rails 3.2. In the meantime, I've created a walkthrough of how to get started on that version via github.

    Great tutorial - clear and concise. Will definitely look to use this in a future project.

    Hello. Great video.

    I just don't understand why you are overriding generated models. They are in vendor/engines directories and they are there for you. Refinery best practice is to edit them direct. Overriding is here only for copying files hidden in gem.

    Right now RefineryCMS now supports Rails 3.2 but it recommends using it with Ruby 1.9.3 not Ruby 1.9.1

    Good video... I'm interested in using entities relationships inside the same engine with appropriate dashboard user interface. In the video there was example of Team-Driver-relationship, when admin could create new driver by selecting appropriate team via combobox. Is that possible to simplify that process using nested routes, so that admin can select team in the teams page first and then create new driver in appropriate team page without selecting it via combobox?

    Thanks for this tutorial - it is a great introduction to refinerycms.

    As I create new engine, then bundle and migrate DB, it doesn't show a link in the menu. I can create items in the admin menu but no page has been generated
