HTML HTML Basics Images, Text and Links Understanding File Paths

File path to open index.html from the articles page didn't work for me (3:50-ish time stamp in video)

Hi all:

Within the article page's code, I entered the file path for the Home link as instructed (../index.html) at about 3:50 in the video, but when I tested the page, the link didn't work.

My folder hierarchy looks fine, as does the coding (matches the instructor's), so I cannot figure out why my link isn't working.

Thanks, Carol

Thank you...

It works for me. I forked the snapshot, opened the preview, and then click on either "Read More" link to go to the article page, then click on "Home" in the nav area and it takes me back to the landing page.

Is it possible that you forgot to refresh your browser after saving your last code change?

Thanks for checking my question out and yes, the refresh works. I won't forget this next time!
