How to Build a Forum with Jumpstart Pro

Rob Thomas asked in Rails

Hey Guys,

I'm following along with the How to Build a Forum with Jumpstart Pro video (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZSom4V-nYxA&t=903s) and I am running into the error "The action 'create' could not be found for PostsController" when trying to reply to a discussion. Here are my files:

posts_controller.rb

class PostsController < ApplicationController
  before_action :set_discussion
  before_action :set_post, only[:edit, :update, :destroy]

  def create
    @post = @discussion.posts.new(post_params)
    @post.user = current_user

    if @post.save
      redirect_to discussion_path(@discussion, anchor: @post.id)
    else
      redirect_to @discussion, alert: @post.errors.full_messages.first
    end
  end

  def edit
  end

  def update
    if @post.update(post_params)
      redirect_to discussion_path(@discussion, anchor: @post.id)
    else
      redirect_to @discussion, alert: @post.errors.full_messages.first
    end
  end

  def destroy
    @post.destroy
    redirect_to @discussion
  end

  private

  def set_discussion
    @discussion = Discussion.find(params[:discussion_id])
  end

  def set_post
    @post = @discussion.posts.find_by!(id: params[:id], user: current_user)
  end

  def post_params
    params.require(:post).permit(:body)
  end
end
