Problem with Workspace

I'm having a problem with my workspace. When I opened it up, it didn't have the resume.html file so I added it. I got up to the point where I wanted to see how it would look without CSS, and I hit the view button. The previous lesson's page popped up. I figured it was because I still had the old index.html file in the workspace, so I deleted that, hit save, and now it doesn't go directly to my resume, but to a menu where I can choose to view images, the resume, or style.css.

What am I doing wrong?

The view button should take you to your website. The computer that your website is stored on (called the server) looks for the index.html webpage to open up. All other pages in your website should be accessible through that page. Without an index.html, the server doesn't know what to open, so it looks like it is setup to take you to the menu. Adding an index.html with a link to your resume in it should allow you to preview your website in the browser, with a link to preview your resume.

Hope that helps.

i'm having problem with workspace. I have created a new file name resume.html. When i hit the preview button to see my work, it doesn't show up the resume.html file though i saved it. In fact it shows the index.html file all the time.

I figured it out. Most likely you had skipped over a video. Watch https://teamtreehouse.com/library/set-up-an-html-document This is the video where you set up the resume page.
