None of my code shows up in the console from my workspace. How do I fix that?

I'll open up my workspace and start working and then when I hit preview, the new tab opens, I open the console but none of my code is reflected. Why is that?

Iman AbuAlia,

Without seeing your solution troubleshooting your issue is pretty tricky. I would recommend adding that information in when running into questions/issues like this.

I do have a few ideas however on what to check.

  1. Ensure you are updating the proper js file.
  2. Go to index.html and verify that it is loading the script you are updating.
  3. Before you preview from the workbench make sure to save from the File menu.
  4. For troubleshooting open the developer tools once your preview page loads and go to the console to see if any errors have been generated.

I hope these suggestions help out.

I am trying to follow along the videos, when I try to view what I have coded, I get a blank blue screen and in the browser the following url: http://port-80-1b78frl08p.treehouse-app.com

I have checked: 1) I am editing the correct file 2) Correct file is linked to the index file.

Please advise
