PHP workspace issue

My workspace had been edited by the instructor and did not work...was there a tech issue with Workspaces this evening? It was as if the instructor had edited my workspace. Mike the Frog wasn't properly named. At times, the preview would not open.

How are you getting on with this? Are you still having problems?

The workspace doesn't work. I am getting an HTTP 500 internal server area. I don't know how this could be generated from my side but if you have any ideas let me know....I am enjoying the course and would like to continue.

I've notified the support team of your issue, hopefully they will be able to help you out!

Specifically it blows up in IE, and throws up a blank page in Firefox and Chrome. To be clear, I can type in code but the "eyeball" icon, when you click on it for the view, it doesn't work. I'm out of browsers.

I am working multiple Treehouse courses and working full time but I plan to sit down and try PHP again as soon as I can. I will send the information after I see what happens the next time I use workspaces in the course. I just wanted to acknowledge your note.

As of 4AM PDT 9/12 the workspace still is only a "space" (it doesn't work...) I can type in code but I get a HTTP 505 error This is the only workspace that blows up on me.

The workspace "view" still doesn't work. It is the only one in the dozens of courses and segments I've taken that does not. Please if you could fix it. I've been enjoying the course. I'd love to finish but I can't tell if my following the instructor's model works...

Sorry for the delay. You had some bugs in your workspace's code that were causing the page to not display. I've fixed those issues...mostly just typos in the php.

Thanks. I can see now that this workspace is going to behave a little differently that the others do. I will try to keep that in mind and be a little careful with it. NJM
