Adding Gravatars

Hello,

I am trying to figure out why the below piece of code won't pass the 2/5 code challenge:

class User < ActiveRecord::Base def gravatar_url self.email = email downcased_email = email.downcased end end

Any help would be appreciated, thanks!

Just do:

class User < ActiveRecord::Base
    def gravatar_url
        email
        email.downcased 
    end
end
