In your model you need to change the to_param to use the profile_name as the id, so this should be in user.rb

def to_param

Thanks for answering Brandon, Tried that and still didn't work. Any other thing I might have missed ?

Then make sure there is a user with that profile name in your database. Make sure it hasn't been misspelled and that the profile name is there. That would be my last guess at what is wrong with the error information you've provided.

Do you mean in my users.yml file ?

No. That file is for testing only. Go to your terminal, type rails console

Then type User.all

That will spit out all users. Make sure your user with that profile name is there.

Yes I'm in there.
