Issues in Starting the project

to put it simple i'am having trouble with the site and it seems that i can't see what it should display as the video was instructed such as The frog, Shirts instead it appears without it but only the text shows and the images wont display. I'am not sure what went wrong and i tried to carefully listen to what the teacher was saying over and over again but i don't seem to grasp in the beginning of the video :(

Could be a lot of things: do you have MAMP/XAMPP/etc. set up and active? If so, verify you've got the files in the proper directory (for MAMP, that's the htdocs folder).

Yeah i have XAMPP (Windows Version) that is running successfully when i first download it, but it seems i don't have it on the right directory which is true because my HTDOCS are placed in the desktop folder instead of it's own file folder in Sublime Text :(

Did you download the files that come with the video? because if not then you dont have the css and images that the teacher is working with.

Did you put the css and img files in the htdocs folder? If not, your server will not have access to them.
