No such table as 'post'

Hello Guys this is the error I am getting. I have been following along using my local computer. Kindly advise what to do as I have created the table.

there is something wrong with the Post model in your models.py

class Post(Model): timestamp = DateTimeField(default=datetime.datetime.now) user = ForeignKeyField( User, #related_name='posts' ) content = TextField()

related_name is "posts" not post, that's why flask cannot find the model 'post' in the User model

also worth notice is that 'related_name' is deprecated in the current peewee and now you should use 'backref' for this
