private method `gsub' called for nil:NilClass
« on: May 26, 2011, 02:43:58 pm »
I've been using PM (4.6.6) for the last few days pretty steadily - uploading pics to my SmugMug account.  The upload always goes smoothly - no problems.

I had just uploaded about 3 or 4 and was trying to upload another and got this message: "private method `gsub' called for nil:NilClass."

I've never seen this before and have no idea what it means.   

I tried exiting PM and opening it up again - that didn't help.  I'll try rebooting and see if that does anything.

Any clues?

Many thanks.

Annie,

This issue is solved in the 4.6.7 beta version.  See the Announcements section for a link to download the beta.

OK.  I'll check that out.  I just can't figure out why it would work just fine, then ten minutes later get that error message?

The SmugMug site is down for maintenance.  I wonder if that would cause the problem?

I will download the beta version.

Thanks much for the response.

Annie P.

To be clear, you're having the same problem as the user from 2011 related to SmugMug?

No, we're still working on it.  It's a rather major overhaul to address the problem.
