Active Record Relationship challenge

Hi

This is the challenge Question:

Let's say we have a BlogPost model and a Comment model that represents comments someone might leave on a blog post. The comments table includes a blog_post_id column. Please setup the relationships correctly.

This is my answer:

class BlogPost < ActiveRecord::Base
  has_many :comments
end

class Comment < ActiveRecord::Base
  belongs_to :blog_post_id
end

This is the error I"m getting:

Bummer! Remember, belongs_to always wants the singular version of the relationship.

Any clue as to what is going wrong?

TIA

Mike

Comments belong to blog posts:

belongs_to :blog_post

not blog_post_ids.

Sorry Dino still not correct. Could you post your complete answer?

The rest of your code is correct, it's just that you need to remove the _id part:

class BlogPost < ActiveRecord::Base 
  has_many :comments 
end

class Comment < ActiveRecord::Base 
  belongs_to :blog_post 
end
