Fonts and Colors video

hey everyone,

In the middle of watching this video while opening my first body selector to add the font-family Nunito, I saved my code and refreshed my working index.html

when I did this, the web page refreshed completely finished like it's supposed to look in the final product. I don't get how this is happening? Now when I go along the video to add each code, the page refreshes to show the final product every time so.

Can someone tell me what I did wrong?

I want to be able to add each code and see the progress...this way, the code I'm adding makes no difference because I somehow did something wrong.

here is my code: http://codepen.io/dannyvega/pen/KjmsB

thank you for any help, much appreciated!

Is it possible that you downloaded the project files and are editing those? If you started with the project files they may be the finished product. My recommendation when doing projects would be to start from scratch. Start with opening your text editor and creating a file called index.html and saving it to your project folder on your computer.

Starting from scratch will allow you to see your progress after each video that you watch.

Hey RJ,

thanks for the recommendation. Sorry but I am new to all of this...how can I tell if I am using the finished product or not? When starting the "Building a Simple Website" stage, I started from scratch and saw my progress along the way. It was only when I got to this video about changing the font-family did the my whole index.html change to show the finished product.

Is there anyway I can tell if it's the finished product? As far as I know, it should be my scratch index.html

thanks!

is it possible to skype to see if I am using the final product?

In your 9th line of code in your HTML document, you didn't wrap the final angle bracket around your link tag for linking in the stylesheet.

You put <link rel="stylesheet" href="css/style.css" type="text/css" media="screen"

It should be <link rel="stylesheet" href="css/style.css" type="text/css" media="screen">

Although I'm not sure that answers your question, I checked out your code and that's the only flaw I saw.

But to answer your question, see above, as I believe RJ explained why you might be seeing the final product regardless of edits.
