I am trying to put a border on my list of users

I am using ruby version 1.9.2-p290, rails version 3.0.19, and bootstrap version 2.3.2. In the video "Updating the index page" They put a thin gray line at the bottom of each status listing. They put it in the "statuses.css.scss. I am using a different version of rails so my application doesnt have a "users.css.scss" So my question is where can I put it to display the line between each list item??

ok so your application doesnt have a users.css...but does it have a statuses.css? If so put it there.

You could also put the css in the application.css file. It really doesnt matter which css file it goes in right now, just as long as your view has the appropriate css class added to it.

edit: Ahh I see what you are saying now. You want to put it on the list of users, not the list of statuses.

Well then, you can create your own css file in the stylesheets directory, then include your .user class css code

.user { #code to make little line goes here; }

then in your index view simply add the class to the div that contains each user

this worked thank you=]
