Error in the last wrapping up exercise ...

This is my code in the Exymple.java:

public class Example {

  public static void main(String[] args) {
    System.out.println("Starting forum example...");
    if (args.length < 2) {
       System.out.println("first and last name are required. eg:  java Example Craig Dennis");
    Forum forum = new Forum("Java");
    // Take the first two elements passed args
    User author = new User(args[0],args[1]);
    // Add the author, title and description
    ForumPost post = new ForumPost(author, "Javadomination", "Hardcore");

I get this error

./Example.java:12: error: ForumPost(User,String,String) has private access in ForumPost ForumPost post = new ForumPost(author, "Javadomination", "Hardcore"); ^ 1 error

It looks like your constructor for the ForumPost class needs to be made public. Hope that helps!
