My resume.html won't preview.

I've saved my work and I looked to see how the instructor switched it but I can't tell how you Only preview the resume.html and Not the index.html. I have snap shots if anyone wants them to help me. I saw one person ask about using another browser and I only use google i hope that's not the problem. I hope I don't have to use firefox or another web browser. I'm not typing in Anything in the url like someone else asked. I just want to know how to not pull up the index.html in my previews. I watched the video on workspaces and the instructor said that the index.html will show up as a default in html workspaces. He never showed how to preview another type of workspace like for instance the resume.html one. But I know I'm missing something. I'm doing something wrong.

Hi there, Ocran Israel! Servers in general, not just here, but out in the wild too are typically configured to display index.html or index.php as the starting file. Such is the case here. If you had your own server, you could configure it to display a different page on startup, though it would not be the norm.

To view your resume.html, you need to change the URL in your web browser by appending a /resume.html to the end of it and then press enter. You do this in the address bar at the top of the page. Alternatively, you could make a link on your index.php using the <a href="resume.html">Resume</a>` somewhere. Then clicking that link would take you to your resume page.

Hope this helps! :sparkles:


Make sure to double-check your quotes for closing fields such as elements. Hope this helps.
