Project Files on this modules directs to a text file not a download.

clicking the "project files" link... http://treehouse-code-samples.s3.amazonaws.com/javascript/strings1.js

on this page... http://teamtreehouse.com/library/javascript-foundations/strings/basics

takes you to a text file, not a download.

might want to zip the text file and change the path.

That's because project files for that particular lesson are that single file.

The point is about continuity. The area is labeled 'Downloads'. If it's labeled as a Download, and you don't provide one, then it shouldn't be labeled a download. It's also labeled a zip file. It's not a zip file. It's a .js file. I get it that there's nothing really needed here. One basically needs to watch the video and follow along. Your site is educating beginners. Continuity is imperative. Labels should be literal, not assumed.

I'm sorry, I misread your original post. I read it as you thinking something might be missing in that particular set of project files, or file, as it is.

This isn't a bad idea, you might want to contact the support about this.

Oh, and I'm just a student here, same as you. Apart from being a moderator on the forums, I have no affiliation with Treehouse.
