CSS CSS Basics (2014) Getting Started with CSS Importing Style Sheets with @import

@import not working

When I attempt to import the style sheet, save, then refresh the page, there are no changes. I've checked my code multiple times and still can't get the page to change per the video. Any pointers?

Are you trying to import it in the HTML file or the CSS file? Can you post the code here for whichever file it is?

Without looking at the code, I'd suggest thinking about the file path in relation to where the file you're importing into exists. If you're importing into the HTML, it's at the root of the site and you have to tell it to look in the CSS folder: "css/style.css"/ if you're importing from the CSS file, both stylesheets exist in the same folder, you cant use the same path. You'd use "style.css" with no preceding "css/".

Posting your code will allow us to give you a more accurate answer, but hopefully this helps!
