page body isn't showing.


In the video above, I was able to get the title whenever I clicked on the individual pages but for some reason the body text is not showing.

<h1><%= @page.title %></h1>

    <%= @page.body %>

Maybe body is just returning nil or an empty string for this Page object. What do you see if you change @page.body to @page.body.inspect?

Or, you might try going into the Rails console, typing Page.find(this_pages_id_number).body and see what you get there. If you get an error, please copy-paste it into this thread.

I'm getting same issue... nothing shows .
