Hi there, Kelvin Zimmerman! The challenge isn't asking you to create a new file it's asking you to create a new view inside views.py which you have here. Currently, your view is named hello_treehouse, but it's asking for it to be named index.

So instead of:

def hello_treehouse(request):  # this creates a view named hello_treehouse

The challenge is looking for:

def index(request):  # this creates a view named index

Hope this helps! :sparkles:
