Hi,

yes I realize I can assert the view template. I'm trying to assert  
the layout one.

I've tried
response.should render_template("pages")
and
response.should render_template("layouts/pages")
and
response.should render_template("/layouts/pages")
and
response.should render_template('/app/views/layouts/site_pages')
