Not getting the same error message as Jason

Not getting the same error message as Jason at 2.20 mins. The error message I am getting is Adding todo items displays an error with no content (FAILED - 1) is successful with valid content

Failures:

1) Adding todo items displays an error with no content Failure/Error: within("div.flash") do Capybara::ElementNotFound: Unable to find css "div.flash" # ./spec/features/todo_items/create_spec.rb:30:in `block (2 levels) in <top (required)>'

The code it relates to is :

require 'spec_helper'

describe "Adding todo items" do
  let!(:todo_list) { TodoList.create(title: "Grocery list", description: "Groceries") }

  def visit_todo_list(list)
    visit "/todo_lists"
    within "#todo_list_#{list.id}" do
      click_link "List Items"
    end
  end


it "is successful with valid content" do
    visit_todo_list(todo_list)
    click_link "New Todo Item"
    fill_in "Content", with: "Milk"
    click_button "Save"
    expect(page).to have_content("Added todo list item.")
    within("ul.todo_items") do
        expect(page).to have_content("Milk")
    end

    end
    it "displays an error with no content" do
        visit_todo_list(todo_list)
        click_link "New Todo Item"
        fill_in "Content", with: ""
        click_button "Save"
        within("div.flash") do
            expect(page).to have_content("There was a problem adding that todolist item")
        end
        expect(page).to have_content("Content cant be blank")

    end

end

I think this might be the answer:

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<head>
  <title>Odot</title>
  <%= stylesheet_link_tag    "application", media: "all", "data-turbolinks-track" => true %>
  <%= javascript_include_tag "application", "data-turbolinks-track" => true %>
  <%= csrf_meta_tags %>
</head>
<body>

  <% flash.each do |type, message| %>
  <div class="alert flash <%= type %>">
    <%= message %>
  </div>
  <% end %>

<%= yield %>

</body>
</html>

I didn't write the alert flash message properly.
