Saving Models and Redirecting Code Challenge - Building Social Features

Hey, I'm stuck on this challenge. Could anyone who's completed it, give me some insight.

class UserFriendshipsController < ApplicationController
    def create
         @user_friendship = current_user.user_friendship.new(user: current_user, friend: @friend)
        flash[:success] = "Friendship created." if @user_friendship.saved?

Cheers, Ben

Hey, ran into the same issue but found a solution from a while back. It wasn't the greatest question in the world (in fact, it's the only one I hadn't been able to get past so far), but what are you going to do. Hope this helps.

*Forgive any markdown issues :)

Here's that post

def create
    @user_friendship = UserFriendship.new(params[:user_friendship])
    if @user_friendship.save
        flash[:success] = "Friendship created."

...just realized your post was from over a year ago, lol
