Sublime Not Saving Work(?)
Hello there, everyone!
Not sure whats going on. I've made to the Styling Content section an I've gotten stuck right after the Fonts an Colors videos. After putting the color hexadecimal code for the the site an trying to save it, nothing happens. It says it saves, but wont come up in the site. I also try to change some of the text on the site an nothing changes anymore.
I did received a pop up message from Sublime stating that my version is not registered. Could this be the issue?

It doesn't matter if Sublime isn't registered or not.
Sublime has a major pitfall that Coda II doesn't have, and that is it's ability to catch that you saved the file and want to update the directory. What happens sometimes is if you move folders around without telling Sublime, it won't update the position of the; for example style.css, or layer.as file. So it's just casting a ghost shell of the file you're working with.
It sounds like your problem is that Sublime is just saving the file into a "blank" area because the directory of where you want to save your file got unhooked. Just make sure everything is hooked up and is pointed into the right directory on your computer.
For example: user/yourname/MAMP/htdocs, git/web etc. Make sure you didn't accidentally command + n a file and then didn't save it in the directory where you're testing.
