scripts.js not linking


It looks like people had an issue with this a year or so ago. That thread didn't help me solve my issue. My alert from scripts.js isn't loading. The alert I wrote within the HTML file loads no problem, the HTML file loads and then my linked alert doesn't execute.

it should be:

<script src="scripts.js"></script>
