Letting you know something doesn't look right... I was on the gem page for numberstoday ( and clicked the link on the lower right for Documentation which took me to ... the resulting page displayed "Oops, We Couldn't Find That Gem" so either the link is wrong or else you have glitch in your new "frameless templates" or some other part of the RubyDoc software.

    Hey there,

    Unfortunately the numberstoday gem is marked as "alpha" (the 0.0.1a), which makes it a pre-release in RubyGems' eyes. Rubydoc does not list pre-release releases. If you're the maintainer, you should publish a proper release. If you aren't the maintainer, you should let the maintainers know about this.

    Hope that helps!

    Hi lsegal:
    In your reply you state "Rubydocdoes not list pre-release releases." If by that statement you mean that alpha gems are not supposed to be displayed on the Search or Browse pages then there is bug after all (albeit a different one than I originally thought) because I found this gem by both searching and by browsing. Below are two screen captures showing the pages that got me to that gem/file link. These screen captures were taken today.

    Hey Matt,

    The screenshots you linked here are from, which is not affiliated with itself does list and support pre-releases, but does not. will also attempt to link to docs for all projects by using a URL pattern, but it does not verify that they exist. Gem owners can customize the doc link shown in, so if that's how you got here, you might also want to notify the maintainer to link to their own docs.

    Though simply making a non-pre release would solve this. If there is only one version of the gem, there's no reason in marking it as a pre-release.
