Hey Zoltan, for the next time if you don't see anything happening try to CTRL F5 in the browser. It will refresh the page with the changes you've made correctly. This is particularly useful when you start working with PHP and have to deal with sessions. This will prevent the page from using previous information and make the page 'clean'

1) Save your change on the workspace with ctrl + s 2) Refresh the webpage and your change will be reflected there

All the best!
