Ruby Build a Simple Ruby on Rails Application Deploying Deploying Treebook to Heroku

Problem deploying app to Heroku using instructions in video

An error message is showing in the browser that "the page you were looking for doesn't exist." I looked online and it seems that a root route will solve the problem. However, I have no idea how to add one or do I know what this is. How can I add one? Your help is much appreciated!

You should have covered routing in the following video:

http://teamtreehouse.com/library/build-a-simple-ruby-on-rails-application/designing-urls/creating-custom-routes

In which the route route is defined as:

route to: 'statuses#index'

Hope that gets you up and running!

Wow! It works! Thank you so very much David!
