Custom Formatting on latest_articles method

Custom Formatting on latest_articles method

Hello all,
I am trying to customize the format of a latest_articles bit of code.  I
only want the image and the title of the article to display, so I wrote
this snippet:

= latest_articles(3).each do |article|

.recent_entry

- unless article.metadata('Image').nil?

%a{ :href => '#' }

%img{ :src => article.metadata('Image'), :alt => article.heading }

%h4= article.heading

It outputs just fine, but after the output I get the full contents of the
three articles files.  Is there a way to not display all of that extra
stuff?  You can see an example of the running code at
http://mobous.herokuapp.com/ at the bottom of the page on the left in the
footer.

Try changing that first line to a - instead of = ?

Thanks Wynn.  That worked.  I knew it was something silly like that, but am
still new to Ruby and HAML.
