Hi Chenzi,

I couldn't see whole errors message, but I think we can look below, we are expecting to have same content (must have same name)

line 7

expect(page).to have_content("New todo_list")

Now let's try go to your localhost:3000/todo_lists/new and see what the title look like in bold. Example - 4:08.

If it is different title, then type exact the same title from localhost:3000/todo_lists/new and replace your content title in create_spec.rb in line 7

expect(page).to have_content("New Todo List")

Hi Chenzi,

I see there is misspelling, let's take a look at file name - "creat_spec.rb"

rspec ./spec/features/todo_lists/creat_spec.rb

Then you can review video again at 4:26

Be careful with spelling missing and spaces.

Hope that helps.

EDIT: You can use backticks(ruby) on the top and then another backticks() to show codes colorful that we can read clearly. :)

Example:

` ` `ruby (remove spaces like ```)

Hi Salman, your suggestion work. I was wondering about this tbh, where did Jason get the "todo_list" part from? Why is his showing "todo_list" and our's "Todo List".

Either way, now I can continue. Thanks man.
