I keep getting the Jane Smith website popping up when trying to view resume. How can I view myresume.html?

I saved the file as myresume.html This is what my workspace looks like:

<!Doctype html>
<html>
  <head>
    <title>Sarah Money's Resume</title>
  </head>
  <body>
    <img src="https://placeimg.com/200/200/tech" alt="Sarah Money, Web Developer">
    <hi>Sarah Money, Web Developer</hi>
    <h2>Summary of Qualifications</h2>

      <li>Experience with HTML, CSS, and JavaScript</li>
      <li>Bachelor of Google Search, Masters in Motherhood</li>
    </ul>
  </body>
</html>

The first project we worked on when learning html is port-80-oia9btur75.treehouse-ap and when I try to open the resume project, this other project is all that appears.

You might try restarting the workspace.

First, save (download) any work you have done that you want to keep. Then go to the Workspaces page and locate the one you are using. Click on the trashcan icon on the right side to delete the workspace, and confirm when you get the pop-up.

With the workspace deleted, you can go back to the course and "Launch Workspace" again. When it comes up, it should have all the files you started with in their initial states. Then upload any work you saved and continue with the course.

I went back and watched "Set up an html document" again. What I missed was the part in the video where she previews the workspace, and adds /resume.html to the end of the web address. Rookie mistake. I knew I missed something. Thank you for your help.

The case-sensitivity was my issue. Hope that helps someone else ha

I changed DOCTYPE to lowercase and it worked...... :)

But DOCTYPE is one thing that is supposed to NOT be case-sensitive (for HTML). :open_mouth:

OK it's no longer case sensitive - I'm not sure what happened but it wouldn't show the resume.html file until I changed the caps to lower case, now it's happy with either and I'm too new to know why LOL!

I had a similar problem with trying to view the resume.html file. My problem was the file was in the image folder by mistake. The resume.html files needs to be below the index.html file.

Ok, so I deleted that workspace and started from scratch. Re-did the work, "just in case," and must still be missing something. I saved the workspace, then previewed it, but the resume page did not show up. The "Hi, I'm Jane Smith from Portland, Oregon" web page showed up as the preview.

Maybe check the file that's you resume.html and type at the end of the link ""Hi, I'm Jane Smith from Portland, Oregon" web page. Be sure its spelled the same (Caps sensitive!)
