JavaScript Build an Interactive Website Introduction to jQuery Including jQuery in our Project

Intro to Jquery start files?

Working on the Intro to Jquery and the project files only have the completed project- not the starting project, making them useless for following along. What gives?

Chase, Chris is right though... there were no files that contained the complete first project files without jquery written in them. We would like to have it available to us so we can follow along the video in a more interactive manner other than the code challenges at the end of the videos.

If you've been following along with the "Smells Like Bakin'" project in both HTML and CSS then you should just be able to follow along the those files.

You could go to the end of it's CSS version and download the end files from there. I would assume they would be the same, or close to the start files for the JQuery.

Right, just went back to the responsive section and downloaded what I was hoping would be the completed project files from there- unfortunately it doesn't include all the pages I was hoping to find to start the jquery section. Super frustrating that I have to take an hour and run through the responsive section when I have no need to do so.

It just seems strange that so many other sections here have "start"and "finish" project files but not all. It would make sense to include them on all projects, especially if one doesn't want to necessarily follow a track.

Contact.html, pricing.html and locations.html are not created anywhere in the interactive website project - which I just completed at your suggestion- even though I didn't help me solve my problem and I didn't want to do that section...

Feeling pretty frustrated.

You can download the project files in their initial state on the first video in the teacher notes. Here's a direct link.
