Body sections not showing

I've added the necessary text on show.html.erb to show the Body but for some reason its not showing up. Below is my code.

<p id="notice"><%= notice %></p>

  <%= @post.title %>
  <%= @post.body %>

<%= link_to 'Edit', edit_post_path(@post) %> |
<%= link_to 'Back', posts_path %>

The code you're showing is in app/views/posts/show.html.erb, right? Sometimes when an object attribute doesn't show up in a view, it's because the attribute is actually set to nil or an empty string. Try adding the below line to your .erb file:

<%= debug @post %>
