    @DevFactor. All my posts are appearing on the profile even one's that are from other users. Any ideas on how to fix this? I imagine it's from the model. My models do have has_many and belongs_to

    +DevFactor, Yo Andrew your tutorials are great. You helped me a lot learning about Rails. Anyways, I was wondering if you could cover the following mechanism before Thursday because I have project that asks to do a social network website. I totally understand if you are busy. Or at least give me a link or something that I could follow. Thank you man
