Java Objects < Wrapping Up Challenge: Completely Lost

Can someone please post a step-by-step on how to complete the four parts of this challenge? I have been working for 30 minutes+ to try and figure this out and am admittedly lost. I may need to go back to previous sections for further clarity, but any information would be greatly appreciated! Thank you so much.

Pleased to assist, but don't want to just give you the answer(s). :wink:

Where are you stuck specifically?


1 Answer

I'm happy to assist.

1) Uncomment the lines in Forum.java at the bottom where it tells you to uncomment them.

2) Uncomment the following lines from Example.java

    Forum forum = new Forum("Java");
    // Take the first two elements passed args
    User author = new User();
    // Add the author, title and description
    ForumPost post = new ForumPost();

3) Start bug fixing. The first line we notice is we need to take the main args array to use for First and Last name like this:

User author = new User(args[0], args[1]); 

4) Next, add author, title, and description.

ForumPost post = new ForumPost(author, "A title you choose", "any description you want");

One you complete that, the challenge will be completed. I hope this helps understand what was needed to complete this challenge. If you have any questions, feel free to ask.
