Hi there! One thing you haven't mentioned trying which I would suggest is clearing your browser cache. It's possible the browser is loading in an older version of your code rather than your newly updated changes.

Try clearing your browser cache, opening the preview, and then refresh the page.

Let me know if this works for you! :sparkles:

Hi yaseen! Can you please link a snapshot to your workspace so we can have a look around? On the upper right-hand side of your workspace you'll find a camera icon which will allow you to create a "snapshot". We can then fork a copy of your workspace and help you troubleshoot this.! :sparkles:
