Workspace doesn't show changes when I preview. I have saved my file, gone out and come back in, but nothing works.

I am using Chrome.

Usually in workspace since I have a windows computer I saved the file by first clicking in the file and then holding ctrl+s and after that the red dot that up at the top of the file I am working with goes away and I know up until that point the file is save. I using google chrome browser too so it should work, if it does not or you still have question feel free to send me another message. I hope this helps you.

Thanks Amon but there is no red dot to be seen and my preview does not reflect my changes.

I a couple of errors in HTML syntax too but that didn't help either.

I am probably going to cancel my subscription - it is not useful if you can't try things out.

Steven Dykstra,

This is a little peculiar and I'm sorry you are having a problem your Workspace.

It may be possible that some aspects of Workspaces may not function correctly if you have certain browser extensions, like an ad-blocker for example. I am not certain of this, but I suppose it could be possible. Check your extensions and whitelist teamtreehouse.com and maybe even it's 3rd party vendors that may show up.

It is not required for you to use Workspaces. You can download your workspace and test locally in your browser since this is a client-side project (i.e. html, css, javascript are all client-side, whereas PHP, Ruby and such are server-side so more setup is needed on your personal computer).

It is possible to do all your coding for this project right in the Chrome Development Tools - Create a Workspace in Chrome - if you save the files to your computer.

Feel free to ask any questions you may have. :)
