CSS Treehouse Club: CSS My First Web Page Introduction to My First Web Page

Introduction to My First Web Page 4:32 with Joy Kesten

I am running out of ideas. I oped the workspace as instructed. First, I went through the index.html and changed all the info from Joy's to my own. I then saved and clicked the little eyeball in the top right corner. Worked great! Next, I selected the style.css from the tabs and began changing RGB codes. I changed border radius and many font sizes. When i click the eyeball to open it in my browser none of the styles or colors are changing. It looks exactly like Joy's page except the picture and information is my own. Am I missing something here?

In case anyone is curious. After saving changes on your CSS simply go to the browser and hit the refresh button up by the url. This updates the code and you can view the changes.

Hi Richard,

Have you saved the .css file before previewing? (Ctrl + s on windows or cmd + s on Mac)

Thank you for your reply, yes I have saved. That does give me an idea though. I am going to log out and close down my browser and try again. who knows.
