Profile data not saving in "Creating Relationships"
When I visit /users/edit to edit my profile in Treebook, the first name, last name, and profile name that I enter is not being saved. This causes an error when I try to display:
<%= @status.user.first_name %>
because there is no first name associated with that status. Anybody have any ideas where to start looking for the problem?

You are using rails 4 and need to use strong parameters to allow those values to be passed to the controller and saved to the database.
