Is that two separate files pasted above? The HTML is expecting the JavaScript to be in "script.js" inside the "js" folder, is that where it is?

To facilitate a more accurate analysis of the issue, make a snapshot of your workspace and post the link to it here.

Thanks for the link to the snapshot video. That is SO easy and helpful. As you can now see for yourself. The Javascript is in fact inside the folder js with the name script.js .

In the snapshot, the "script.js" file is in the root (top-level) folder where "index.html" is. The "js" folder is there, but empty.

Just move the "script.js" file into the "js" folder. Either drag it using the left pane, or type "mv script.js js" in the command pane.

And would the person who downvoted this answer please leave a comment and let me know how I can improve? Thanks!

Thanks so much! I wouldn't have caught that otherwise.
