Hi Jesse,

There a couple of things that could cause this, so try some of these things and let us know how it goes:

Try clearing your browser's cache, or using another browser (that won't have anything cached). This seems kinda dumb but it's the simplest fix sometimes!

Do changes you make to other scss files show up in your browser when you refresh the page on your development server? If not, try removing any precompiled assets (in the public/assets folder) if you have them (you probably don't).

Can you find scaffold.css in the header of the page, OR the code from scaffold.css inside application.css? It may not even be included for some reason. If it's not there, the issue should be fixable by changing some settings in the file config/environments/development.rb .
