What the subject says.

I'm defining this in a controller:

public function create() {
		return array(

And it returns a 500 error. If I rename it to something else, the 500 disappears.

What gives?

What is the specific error message? I think create() may conflict with the create function defined for making new objects in SS. You could probably name your function like create_blah() then use Director to map create/ to create_blah to avoid conflicts.

I was thinking that was the problem, that it was defined somewhere else.
