Ruby Rails Routes and Resources A Route to a Read Action Set Up a URL Parameter

Trouble with 2nd code challenge for creating a route

The question is the following:

Set up a route to view an individual Pet. It should match GET requests with a path of /pets/ followed by the ID of the particular Pet: /pets/3, /pets/27, etc. You'll need to set it up so that the ID from the path is available within the controller as params[:id]. Matching requests should be routed to the show action method on PetsController

I feel like my code should be correct but i may be missing something.

I'm calling the http method get to the /pets/:id path where each pet can be called with the id parameter to: pets#show i.e. the pets controller with the show method.

Any help would be much appreciated!

Rails.application.routes.draw do
  get '/pets/:id' to: 'pets#show'

Only a small issue here.

Between 'pets/:id' and 'pets#show', you need to have a comma as a separator there.

Rails.application.routes.draw do
  get '/pets/:id', to: 'pets#show'

hope it helps

Wow good eye thank you.
