Forking? I logged out and back in with no success. Says "not authorised"

Hi!

I have the same problem. I tried to sign out and back in. I did few dozen refreshes. I even tried to open workspaces in different browser. Still same error. It started yesterday after workspaces were down for a while.

Can someone help?

What browser are you using? I am using Chrome and it is working for me for some reason.

safari. I can get workspaces to open elsewhere on the website, launch a new empty workspace but even a copy and paste doesn't work with the preview button.

OK, I got it working but its a bit of a work around.

Step one, on the left hand menu select the work space Icon.

Step two, start a New workspace and give it a name, "tester" for example

Step 3, make it a front end

Step 4, select the last introduction to workspaces from the last selection window.

Launch it. then, select Index.html from the left window as shown from the video and this should work

Thanks a lot James. But this surely a backend problem from treehouse. A lot of users today are getting the same error.
