Hi, I see 2 problems here.

  1. in templates/layout.html: You have {% Block content %} and you should have {% block content %}.
  2. in templates/index.html: You need to put the original title of index.html in the title block, so instead of {% block title %}{{super()}} Smells like Bakin{% endblock %}, you would put {% block title %}Homepage{% endblock %}.

after making these changes you should be good to go!
