Workspace not working at all.

I'm following the video and whenever i click preview it doesnt show anything, i'm saving the files and I have even put a <h1>Test</h1> on the index.html page. I am using chrome, i have tried on firefox and i works there but why it isn't working on chrome?

This is the code i have tried:

script.js: alert("Hello from treehouse"); document.write("Welcome to Javascript basics");

index.html:

<!DOCTYPE html> <html lang="en"> <head> <meta charset="utf-8"> <link rel="stylesheet" href="css/main.css"> <title>JavaScript Basics</title> </head> <body> <div class="container"> <script src="scripts.js"></script> <h1>Test</h1> </div> </body> </html>

If it's working on one browser, but not the other, it's likely that the browser that it's not working on is loading in cached data. Try clearing your browser cache and see if that doesn't clear it up! :sparkles:

For me it is not working in any of the browsers. I cleared the cache, but still nothing. :(

Hi Daniel Cavalcanti Figueiredo! Because this solution is not working for you, and you may have different code, I would ask that you submit an entirely new question to the forums. Don't forget to either include your code or a snapshot to your workspace. A snapshot can be made by clicking the camera icon on the upper right hand side of your workspace and linking it to us. Your code can be posted using markdown. Instructions on how to use markdown can be found on the "Markdown Cheatsheet" link at the bottom of the "Add an Answer" section of this page. :sparkles:
