I'm getting this failure when I test statuses_controller_test.rb 1) Failure: test_should_create_status_when_logged_in(StatusesControllerTest) [test/functional/statuses_controller_test.rb:35]: "Status.count" didn't change by 1. <3> expected but was <2>.

11 tests, 17 assertions, 1 failures, 0 errors, 0 skips I have put the before_filter :authenticate_user!, only:[:new, :create, :edit, :update] in the statuses_controller_rb and I'm still getting this error a few people been posting about it still cant find a solution please help. Also when running user_test.rb I am getting this 1) Failure: test_a_user_can_have_a_correctly_formatted_profile_name(UserTest) [test/unit/user_test.rb:41]: Failed assertion, no message given.

6 tests, 12 assertions, 1 failures, 0 errors, 0 skips 41 assert user.valid? when I write it like this it passes asset !usre.valid? is this right if not please help Thank you

Can you paste a link to your code up on GitHub? I don't think I have enough information here to troubleshoot.

ok I'll try have to find out how to do it thank you for responding

quick rundown on what's failing in statuses_controller_test.rb test "should create status when logged in" do sign_in users(:robert)

assert_difference('Status.count') do         #This is line 35
  post :create,  status: { content: @status.content }
end

and failure message 1) Failure:
test_should_create_status_when_logged_in(StatusesControllerTest) [test/functional/statuses_controller_test.rb:35]: "Status.count" didn't change by 1. <3> expected but was <2>.

11 tests, 17 assertions, 1 failures, 0 errors, 0 skips

ok found the problem (SOLVED)for statuses controller sill having problems with testing the user_test.rb file

I'm having the same problem in this post https://teamtreehouse.com/forum/help-ruby-on-rails-testing-the-profile-name like everyone else . so its probably some little error can you look at that post and let me know thank you

Robert Borsey can you possibly drop a link to your code up on GitHub along with the exact error you're getting? That will make it much easier to troubleshoot and help out.
