What do I need to be able to scroll up and down on the home page?

I noticed in the video that Dave was able to scroll up and down on the home page. It works for the team and work.html, but not the index.html. Is there something I am leaving out for this to work? Other than that, everything else works just fine. Here is my index.html code:

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html class="no-js">
    <head>
        <meta charset="utf-8">
        <meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=edge,chrome=1">

The HTML alone is often not enough to illustrate the issue, particularly when images are involved.

To share the entire project, you can make a snapshot of the workspace and provide the link.

Susan, honestly there is not enough content on the page for it to warrant scrolling. Notice that the scroll bar does not appear on the home page on the right (unless you shrink down to mobile view). The other two pages have enough content to make the scroll bar appear.

Hope this helps!

I think Eric is hitting the nail on the head with this project. To test this theory out, just throw a bunch of lorem ipsum into a paragraph tag and place it on the index.html page. If you notice that it starts working, it's just an issue of having enough content on the page to warrant scrolling. Best of luck!

I second what Eric is saying. My work around is simply to test it on the "Team" and "Work" pages as these provide enough content to scroll. Hope this helps.
