Issues with flask social media app...

Hey there, I'm having issues with my Flask social media app. It's not an exercise but a content error I keep getting when I try to post.

jinja2.exceptions.TemplateSyntaxError jinja2.exceptions.TemplateSyntaxError: Encountered unknown tag 'extend'.

^^^^ looks like that.

Help from someone on this would be much appreciated :) Thanks

Hi Vic

I cant see your code, so i am just going to try and guess. I think you might have a typo somewhere.

{% extend 'layout.html' %}

should be 

{% extends 'layout.html' %}

does this help?

Also, are you able to see the CSS design stuff that's in the video? All I get is bland text web app.
