I am not sure what I am doing wrong in this project.

I'm having a hard time rendering the required file.

require "sinatra"

def load_signature(index)
  lines = File.readlines("signatures.txt")
  # Parameter is a string; convert to integer
  index = index.to_i

get "/:index/edit" do
  @index = params[:index]
 @signature = load_signature(@index)
erb :index
<p>Please enter your name below.</p>

  <input type="text" name="signature" value="<%= %>">
  <input type="submit">

Hi there,

You want to render the :edit not the :index. :smile:
