Thanks so much!

Ran into this error in part 4 of the ActionCable group chat. What exactly am I missing? Schema looks fine same with MessagesController.

ActionController::UnknownFormat in MessagesController#create
MessagesController#create is missing a template for this request format and variant. request.formats: ["text/html"] request.variant: []
raise ActionController::UnknownFormat, message

What am I missing?

Never mind! Missed adding user:reference when scrubbing back in the video!

Having some trouble figuring out what I'm missing with submitting a message in the chatroom, I get the error for my messages_controller.rb saying that can't write unknown attribute `user_id. However checking the source files I saw that my messages_controller.rb was the exact same as the example under my create saying message.user = current_user is incorrect:

Error encountered at about 13min into tutorial.

  def create
    message =
    message.user = current_user
    redirect_to @chatroom

GoRails Screencast code from part 3:

My Code:

Running ruby 2.3.0p0 (2015-12-25 revision 53290) [x86_64-darwin16], Rails

Thanks for your help,
