CSS CSS Layout Basics Positioning Page Content Create an Image Caption with Absolute Positioning

Create an Image Caption with Absolute Positioning?

Hello, I'm currently having issues with trying to preview the workspace for the video "Create an image caption with absolute positioning" within the CSS Layout Basics course. Even though the style sheets are already linked within the index file automatically, it's not displaying the styles at all. Thank you in advance for your assistance!

I'm using Chrome, and the CSS displays the correct styles for me when I launch the workspace. Here's some suggestions in case they weren't already covered by the support folks:

I notice this page says "This step uses a new Workspace...", so you might need to close any already open and launch again. But if that doesn't resolve the issue....

It creates a workspace with the default name of "CSS Layout Basics - Create an Image Caption with Absolute Positioning". You could go to the Workspaces page, and if you already have one by that name, delete it. Then go back to the course page and launch it again.

I found my solution. Since the workspace button was not working to help preview the actual workspace, I went ahead and downloaded the project files instead and uploaded them to a new workspace . It is working now, but thank you for trying to help :).

The unfortunate issue, is that I already emailed them at teamtreehouse email, but they weren't able to help me out :(

I've tried that too, but it definitely was not opening up a new workspace. I always pay attention to those yellow alerts bars when it does tell you to open a new workspace for the activity. I already downloaded the project files and uploaded it to a new workspace.
