The script tag in the index.html file tries to load a resource from "js/script.js", but there is no file in that location.

But there is a "script.js" file in the home folder that would display an alert, so either of these would enable it:

  • remove the "js/" prefix from the src attribute in the script tag
  • move the "script.js" file into the "js" folder

This helped! Thanks! Put the files in the wrong folders.
