[jifty-devel] Errors when running through the tutorial

G'day everyone,

I'm new to Jifty, so I thought I'd work through the tutorial on CPAN for the 
blog.  Unfortunately I encounter an error at the Viewing stage.  If I pick the 
"quick and dirty way": 

I get the following error:

Error in template /index.html line 3

Can't locate object method "new" via package "MyWeblog::Model::PostCollection" 
(perhaps you forgot to load "MyWeblog::Model::PostCollection"?) at 
/home/jarich/jifty/Test/share/web/templates/index.html line 3.

Picking the "complex way": 

of course generates the same error on the index page, but not at /post (although 
it does if I post a blog entry).  The tutorial suggests that Jifty::ClassLoader 
should be taking care of this, but it clearly isn't.  I'm not sure where I 
should be initialising ClassLoader to solve this problem.

Another interesting thing was that the error page after posting the tutorial 

Error in template /fragments/page_of_posts line 3

with the template being a link.  If I attempt to follow the link though I get a 
404: "You got to a page that we don't think exists. Anyway, the software has 
logged this error. Sorry about this."

All the best,
