NoMethodError RoR

I have been working through the "Build a Simple RoR App" and have hit a snag. I made it through Creating an Authentication System. After completing the section, I went to check the app functionality. When trying to create a new status update, I get the following error:

NoMethodError in Statuses#new

Showing /Users/scottyrunyan/Desktop/Projects/treebook/app/views/statuses/_form.html.erb where line #16 raised:

undefined method `name' for #<Status:0x007f9e8d681770> Extracted source          (around line #16):

14:   <div class="field">
15:     <%= f.label :name %><br />
16:     <%= f.text_field :name %>
17:   </div>
18:   <div class="field">
19:     <%= f.label :content %><br />

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
