Code Challenge: Adding Controller Methods 4/5

Is there anything I'm missing on this code? I'm on part 4/5 of the CC, and it seems like whatever I do to change a small part of it. Nothing works.. I've gone back to the video several times to see if I was missing anything but there is nothing that I personally could not find.

Can anyone please help figure out what I'm missing here?

Here's the question:

Set the flash success message if the user_friendship variable was successfully blocked.

Here's the error:

Bummer! Try again!

Here's my code:

   class UserFriendshipsController < ApplicationController

     def block

    @user_friendship = current_user.user_friendships.find(params[:id])

        if @user_friendship.block!

        respond_with user_friendship

        flash[:success] = "You have blocked #{@user_friendship.friend.first_name}"        

    else

     flash[:error] = "That friendship could not be blocked"

end

     redirect_to user_friendships_path

end

Sorry. I meant this, again.

class UserFriendshipsController < ApplicationController 
  def block @user_friendship = current_user.user_friendships.find(params[:id]) 
    if @user_friendship.block! 
     flash[:success] = "You have blocked #{@user_friendship.friend.first_name}." 
    end 
  redirect_to user_friendships_path 
end 

end

It's weird but this code is the one that passed for me.

This passed.

class UserFriendshipsController < ApplicationController
  def block
    @user_friendship = current_user.user_friendships.find(params[:id])
    if @user_friendship.block!
      flash[:success] = "You have blocked someone."
    end
  end
end

Hey Nathan Mercado it's a little hard to tell from the formatting but I think you may be missing a final "end" at the bottom. Give that a try and let me know how it goes.

@Jason Seifer sorry I haven't responded to you for 15 days! I currently got back on and retried the code and I figure out what the problem was. I made the code way to complicated then it was suppose to be. I just had to remove the "else" statement and remove a "end" and bam I finished it.(:

Stuck on this one as well part 4/5.

class UserFriendshipsController < ApplicationController
  def block
  @user_friendship = current_user.user_friendships.find(params[:id])
  if @user_friendship.block!
    flash[:success] = "You have blocked #{@user_friendship.friend.first_name}."
  else
    flash[:error] = "That friendship could not be blocked."
    end
    redirect_to user_friendships_path
  end
end

Tried this as well.

class UserFriendshipsController < ApplicationController
  def block
  @user_friendship = current_user.user_friendships.find(params[:id])
  if @user_friendship.block!
    flash[:success] = "You have blocked #{@user_friendship.friend.first_name}."
  else
    flash[:error] = "That friendship could not be blocked."
    end
    redirect_to user_friendships_path
  end
end
