app.set('view engine', 'pug');
app.set('views', __dirname + '/templates')

app.get('/', (req, res) => {
  res.render('main');
});

Hi there,

Here:

app.get('/', (req, res) => {
  res.render('main');
});

app.get('/', (req, res) => {
  res.render('index');
})

You have the path as the same: /, so it will likely render only the Main page and not the index. You likely need to update one of those two options.
