Profile Page not showing entire status


I am doing the Treebook project and I am on this stage http://teamtreehouse.com/library/programming-2/build-a-simple-version-of-facebook/building-the-profile-page/testing-the-profiles-controller. Basically I got the profile page to work but it doesnt show the entire status. I get no errors, but it only shows the time the status was posted and not the actual status it self. I am using this code:

<div class="page-header"> <h1><%= @user.full_name %></h1> </div>

<% if @statuses %> <% @statuses.each do |status| %> <div class="well"> <% status.content %> <hr /> <%= link_to time_ago_in_words(status.created_at), status_path(status) %> ago </div> <% end %> <% end %>

Has anyone else come across this?

Hey Tel, you're missing an = sign. Make your code look like this:

<%= status.content %>

That tells Ruby to display the result rather than just evaluate the code in the erb blocks.
