Ruby Build a Todo List Application with Rails 4 Build a Todo List Application with Rails 4 Adding Validations to Todo Items

Odd Failure/Error

It doesn't match the video's failure where it expected to find text "There was a problem adding that todo list item." in "Added todo list item.".. Instead I receive the error below. How would I go along fixing it?

Adding todo items is successful with valid content displays an error with no content (FAILED - 1)

Look closely at the error, what was expected and what it actually found on the page:

"There was a problem adding that todo list item."

"There was a problem addding that todo list item."

Thank you. I can't believe I didn't see that!
