getting "undefined method" failures - help!

okay, so it turns out I am just a dummy who didn't save all of my work. one of my files hadn't been saved, so when I gave up and closed out of Sublime Text, it prompted me to save, which I did. I thought that was odd, so I tried re-running the test, and now I'm getting the same result as in the course.

I would still like to know, however, how can I cut and paste my code so it appears like it does in my text editor/terminal? (I see a lot of other people have this figured out, and it would make my questions much less ugly, haha!)

You can paste your code here, then I will format it properly and then you will click "Edit" to see what I did. Then click the "Markdown Cheatsheet" link and see how it works. Then experiment a lot with comments etc. until you see the results you want ;).

wow, so simple... I could've sworn I looked at the Markdown Cheatsheet before, but must have missed the code instructions. just one follow up question... when pasting text from the terminal, should I just be leaving the language designation blank?

    it "displays the title of the todo list" do
        visit_todo_list(todo_list)
        within("h1") do
            expect(page).to have_content(todo_list.title)
        end
    end

many thanks, Maciej!

You can use 'terminal' keyword and it will make the font color plain white.

thanks Maciej! I actually figured out why I was getting the errors. There was an unsaved file I had open somewhere in the text editor. once I saved everything I was back where I expected to be.

so now I feel like I'm left inundating you with stupid questions about forum functionality. how do I mark a question as answered?

Don't worry about this :). You can add your own answer (explaining what was wrong) and mark it as the bets one to indicate that this topic is closed.
