Newbie needs help

Here are the basic instructions I was given from my teacher to complete
a website…

Create a web page (.html.erb extension) that displays the following:

Current time and date obtained from the Time object.

An image of the sun if the time is between 6:00am and 6:00pm. An image
of the moon if the time is between 6:00pm and 6:00am.

The name of the current month.

An image representing the current month.

I’ve attached the controller and html.erb files that I was able to do so
far. For some reason when I try to get the sun and moon to show up, i
get an error message. Please help, thank you

So what does that mean? How do I fix it?

It means we don’t know until we see the error message you are getting.
Please post the error message.

Post the error message, i guess it is unable to find the images as the
paths to the images are neither relative nor absolute.

I realize I may be crossing a line here by providing too much
assistance, but I’m going to do it anyway just so you have an idea of
how much unnecessary work your doing in your code.

You’re not taking advantage of either Ruby, nor the Rails framework, in
your attempt. Compare what you have with…

Note: This was a very quick refactoring of the OP code so don’t judge
too harshly. I’m sure it could still be improved. I also didn’t not take
the additional re-factoring step to move the controller logic into the
model layer where it probably should belong.

P.S. Remember DON’T PLAGIARIZE! Especially not for school work. I offer
this code as an example to illustrate how to take advantage of the
features of the language you’re working with.

P.S.S. The answer to your question is there too, but I’ll leave that as
an exercise for you to discover.
