I got this page http://port-80-d5vcpxl0ne.treehouse-app.com/ when I was trying to preview my workspace

Hi can't tell what I'm doing wrong with my html codes. Yesterday I was following along and got "Nick Petit as a result and I didn't even use his name, I used my name.

Today I started a brand new workspace and was practicing the codes again and I got thishttp://port-80-d5vcpxl0ne.treehouse-app.com/ but I can't tell what I'm doing wrong.

Can you please explain it better? What is this result you are talking about? Is http://port-80-d5vcpxl0ne.treehouse-app.com/ the workspace URL? What do you mean you didn't use Nick Petit's name?

That URL does look like the kind of temporary locations generated by workspace previews. Was there something wrong with the content displayed there?

Other than that, general hints with workspaces would be:

  • be sure you are editing the index.html, or know how to get to it if a different file.
  • remember to save your edits
  • refresh your browser after the save to update the preview

Did you delete the Workspace while refreshing? If so, that will erase all of your progress on your Workspace. I have done it myself, and I learned the hard way...

And also, as Steven Parker said, remember to save your edits every time you finish a session.

Thank you guys life got in the way and I haven't been able to get back here. I pretty much just got a blank screen with this link http://port-80-d5vcpxl0ne.treehouse-app.com/ in the address bar. It's very possible that I entered something wrong while practicing.

I'll be sure to save my edits from now on, thanks again.

You can also try downloading the workspace and opening the html document directly from the drive you saved it in.
