Error message in console


I got as far as 13 minutes 43 seconds into the video.

I run the server, preview it, open Port 3000, and the workspace is unavailable. In the console, I get this message:

Server running at http://<workspace-url>/                                                                 
  return binding.open(pathModule._makeLong(path), stringToFlags(flags), mode);

You mistakenly gave the HTML file a .js extension instead of .html so the name is wrong. (I also noticed you're missing an openint < on the image tag in that file as well.)

Hi Seth. I added the missing opening tag and changed the file extension. Well spotted. I've upvoted you and given you Best Answer. Thank you. :-)
