Intex.html Title Experience VR won't preview right. I keep getting index followed by links for things I didn't do

Following along the video I have done the steps that have been presented to me twice <!DOCTYPE html> <html> <head> <title>Experience VR</title> </head>

<body> Experience VR A simple blog about virtual reality experience </body> </html>

When I save and go to preview I see a Index title in the tab as well as links to things I haven't done. Am I doing something wrong?

Perhaps you're working in a sub-folder? The "index.html" from the main folder will be served to the preview by default.

If that's not it you might make a snapshot of your workspace and post the link to it here to facilitate further analysis.

I had this problem. but I figured it out. If you name your 'Index.html' file with a Uppercase 'i' at the beginning. It'll display the contents of the directory rather than your web page. You can just right click on the 'Index.html' file and rename it with a lowercase 'i' and it'll display correctly.

Post a snapshot (not a "screenshot") if you'd like some help with it.

Your symptoms may be the same, but the issue can be very different. So you should always start your own fresh question.

But at first glance I could see that your "index.html" file is completely empty.
