Honestly, as much as I love the effort put into the workspaces, I left them behind long ago. I have gotten much better results using an outside program like PHP storm (free for students) or netbeans. The biggest asset is that they offer real-time error checking on your code!

Hi Jeremy,

This is a great point! I also tend to follow along in my IDE of choice (either PyCharm, IntelliJ IDEA, or VS Code depending on language) rather than use the workspaces. It's hard to leave behind custom syntax highlighting, real-time linting, and a more responsive interface.

That said if you're, for some reason, on a system that doesn't have your IDE, the browser workspaces are better than nothing.

Cheers,

Eric

Hi Katan,

I was able to launch the workspace from the Create an Image Caption with Absolute Positioning video in the CSS basics course.

Can I recommend that you log out of Treehouse, close your browser, wait 30 seconds, then try again? If that still fails try clearing your browser's cache and/or restarting your computer. Sometimes when launching a lot of workspaces or code challenges in a single session things can get a bit mixed up. Starting fresh should always work.

Cheers,

Eric
