test_that_var_are_assigned_on_successful_profile_viewing(ProfilesControllerTest) [test/functional/profiles_controller_test.rb:19]: Expected [] to not be empty.

When running the test for profile controller I get this error, does anyone know how can I fixit?

test "that var are assigned on successful profile viewing" do get :show, id: users(:ben).profile_name assert assigns(:user) assert_not_empty assigns(:statuses) end

Hi Alex, did you ever get this resolved? Im having the same problem and have no idea whats going wrong. I've even compared my code to several other Treebook users on github and can see no difference!
