PHP Course... Access to CSS File denied

Hi all,

I know that after 3 years I'm a little late into the breach :)

But I've just finished the second stage of Randy Hoyte's "Build a simple PHP Application course and I wanted to try the Extra Credit... but I can't get into the CSS file I need to do it.

Did Randy lock us out of the file? Help. :)

Hello Jonathan :) Are you refering to the extra where he says to - Add another page to the menu for something like "Company Information." ? If so, I downloaded the project from the latest video called "Adding Active States to the Navigation" and am editing the .css file just fine. I create a new file, copy the code and upload that new file somewhere if you want so that you can use it?

Hi there Kristian, yes the Extra Credit for Stage 2 of the course. I downloaded the files right from the start so i wonder if it's just been locked out so i can't do anything silly with the site visually and just concentrate on the php side :)

That may be the case. Did you try downloading it from a different video?

Not yet, but it's my next port of call :(

Or maybe try to access it from the browser source code and copy it over :-)

Yup, it worked. :-)

I got the file from a download from another video and deleted the existing folder. I got in. :D thanks.
