Can delete status when logged out


I just followed the beginners ruby on rails tutorial (the first for status updates).

I thought I had followed exactly as per tutorial , but i found that I can delete statuses even when not logged in. So I can delete statuses of other users.

Anyone have the same bug or did i miss something?

Hi Simon,

Guys correct me if im wrong although, I believe its a step later on in the tutorial. Im in the "Creating Friendships" stage and I have not come across the fix yet. Its either corrected later in the tutorial (much later) or its something you may have to right the code for yourself.

hopefully this helps!

I've found the course where the span class of admin is used.

The following does not hide the edit and delete:


<span class="admin"> <td><%= link_to 'Edit', edit_event_path(event) %></td> <td><%= link_to 'Destroy', event, method: :delete, data: { confirm: 'Are you sure you want to delete this event?' } %></td> </span>


.event .admin { display: none; }

not sure whats going on
