css changes do not work. I have read all the Q&A here but still can't resolve the problem.

I took the snapshots, please, can anyone help me. I can't find where I made a mistake. Neither background-color nor anchor affect my html file. Thanks in advance.

Post your html and css code here so we can have a look.. Remember to link your css file in your html using: <link rel="stylesheet" href="yous css location">.. And also remember you need to place it after your normalize.css link. <link rel="stylesheet" href="css/normalize.css"> <link rel="stylesheet" href="yous css location">

Yea thats annoying.. Open the developer tools (cmd + alt + J on mac or ctrl + alt + J on windows I think), then click Network in the toolbar. Then check the "Disable cache" checkbox at the top.

I am having the same problem. I disabled the cache and the problem was still there. I took the css files out of the css folder and put them top level, removed the css/ part in the href and then it worked. Any idea why? (UPDATE) I figured it out, the folders are case sensitive. I had all caps CSS title for the folder and was referencing it with lowercase css.

Thanks Marco for the answer. It seems I have found the problem which was because of the cache. But now whenever I apply changes to my codes, Chrome does not show the changes unless I clean the cache which is very uncomfortable. Do you how this can be fixed? Thanks again!
