HTML Treehouse Club: HTML Publish a Story Introduction to Workspaces

I created the index.html. file but after that I cannot do anything on it.

What did I do wrong?

When you say you can't do anything to it. Are you saying you don't know what to do? Or are you saying something else, like it's not responding as you would expect.

I cannot type in. It's not responding at all on my created field. Thanks for reply!

Ok, so you have workspaces open, You click somewhere on the index.html file. There should be a little cursor where you clicked. Are you getting that?

Yes, I got that one. I can clicked anywhere but not on the index.html filed which I've created

In workspaces where you click, that is the index.html file. When you click on the eye in the upper right hand corner of workspaces, that opens a preview of what the html file looks like in a browser. That preview is the visual representation of the index file. You can't do anything to it yet. If you want to change that preview, you have to go back to workspaces. Click somewhere on the html file and do something. Type something, delete something do whatever. Save it by using Ctrl/s or Cmd/s (depending on if you are using windows or mac) then go to the browser, (the visual representation of the file) refresh the page (click the semicircle at the top of the browser to do this) and you will see any changes you have made in the html file. :D
