full_name Not Showing on Profile Page

every thing is working bt user name is not showing in my profile page.

This is my show.html.erb file.

        <div class="page-header">

    <h1> <%= @user.full_name %> </h1>


         <% if @statuses %>

         <% @statuses.each do |status| %>

            <div class="well">

            <%= status.context %>


    <%= link_to time_ago_in_words(status.created_at), status_path(status) %> ago


           <% end %>

           <% end %>

Greatly appreciate any help. Thank you!

Try using the "yield" function before @user.full_name .. I'm stabbing in the dark here, but it worked with a project I'm working on in a similar manner.

No, this code is not helping me :(

      <%= yield @user.full_name %>

It's likely that you haven't fully defined what @user.full_name is yet. Can you post all of the code for Me and I'll try to help you the best I can

when i try the code without @ symbol it's give me error

undefined local variable or method `user' for #<#<Class:0x51d1b20>:0x51d06c8>

Go ahead and post all of your code and I'm sure I can figure out what's going on.

My profile_controller_test.rb look like this

require 'test_helper'

class ProfilesControllerTest < ActionController::TestCase

test "should get show" do

get :show, id: users(:sarah).profile_name

assert_response :success

assert_template  'profiles/show'


test "should render a 404 on profile not found" do

get :show, id: "doesn't exist"

assert_response :not_found


  test "that variables are assigned on successful profile viewing" do

 get :show, id: users(:sarah).profile_name

    assert assigns(:user)

    assert_not_empty assigns(:statuses)


  test "only shows the correct user's statuses" do

  get :show, id: users(:sarah).profile_name

 assigns(:statuses).each do |status|

  assert_equal users(:sarah), status.user




Are you using Rspec or MiniTest suite?
