no method error - undefined method

I thought I had defined the method, but I keep getting an error. Should
I just be able to call user.favorite_places? Would appreciate any
help.

    favorite_places_controller.rb

    class FavoritePlacesController < ApplicationController

before_action :set_place, except: [:index]
before_action :authenticate_user!

  def index
     @places = User.favorite_places
  end

  def create
    if Favorite.create(favorited: @place, user: current_user)
      redirect_to @place, notice: 'Place has been favorited'
    else
      redirect_to @place, alert: 'Something went wrong. *womp womp*'
    end
  end

  def destroy
    Favorite.where(favorited_id: @place.id, user_id:
current_user.id).first.destroy
    redirect_to @place, notice: 'Place is no longer a favorite'
  end

  private

  def set_place
    @place = Place.find(params[:place_id] || params[:id])
  end

end

Favorite.rb
class Favorite < ActiveRecord::Base
  belongs_to :user
  belongs_to :favorited, polymorphic: true
  belongs_to :place

end

user.rb

class User < ActiveRecord::Base

#Relationships

  #Favorites
  has_many :favorites
  has_many :favorite_places, through: :favorites, source: :favorited,
source_type: 'Place'

end

I just be able to call user.favorite_places? Would appreciate any

def index

 @places = User.favorite_places

end

Is this where it’s blowing up? You’re using it like a class method there, when most likely you’ve defined it as an instance method. Glancing at the rest, I think you meant current_user.favorite_places.

Thanks Dave, yes, you're right. Changed that part to:

def index
  @places = current_user.favorite_places.all
end

Fixed the rest via making only favorite polymorphic, not
favorite_places.
