I have seen this error posted and corrected but still cannot solve my issue. Here is the error.

And here is my create spec

require 'spec_helper'

describe "Adding todo items" do
  let!(:todo_list) { TodoList.create(title: "Grocery list", description: "Groceries") }

  def visit_todo_list(list)
    visit "/todo_lists"
    within "#todo_list_#{list.id}" do
      click_link "List Items"
    end
  end

  it "is successful with valid content" do
    visit_todo_list(todo_list)
    click_link "New Todo Item"
    fill_in "Content", with: "Milk"
    click_button "Save"
    expect(page).to have_content("Added todo list item")    
    expect(page).to have_content("Milk")
  end

  it "displays an error with no content" do
    visit_todo_list(todo_list)
    click_link "New Todo Item"
    fill_in "Content", with: ""
    click_button "Save"
    within("div.flash") do
      expect(page).to have_content("There was a problem adding that todo list item")
    end
      expect(page).to have_content("Content can't be blank")
    end

end

Solved it. I had the wrong message in my todo_items_controller.rb. Duh
