I am having this error when I turn on the server and try to http://localhost:3000/stories/1 as on page 207 of the book.

Before posting, I did a quick check in this forum for "NoMethodError" and another coder posted a similar error, except her error occurred while evaluating nil.login

Thanks in advance for your help!
