Hiya Jamal! In the 3rd part of the challenge , you have to flash a message using flash() , saying "Thanks for registering!", and if the form is validated , you need to create the entries in the database from whatever data comes in from the user, right? Head over to your "models.py", there is a classmethod called "new()". This method creates all 'em entries for ya and it takes two arguments , email and password. so this is how your "/register" route should look like:

@app.route('/register', methods=('GET', 'POST'))
def register():
    form = forms.SignUpForm()
    if form.validate_on_submit():
        flash("Thanks for registering!", "success")
        models.User.new(email=form.email.data, password=form.password.data)
    return render_template('register.html', form=form)
