Workspace preview only shows code instead of actual webpage.

Hello I am currently working in workspace. When selecting the preview icon, I am directed to a page that only shows the code inside of actual page. I have used the preview button before with success. The only thing I added differently was include font.


Can you post your code so we can see what's going on? Sounds like you did not link your stylesheet or something similar.

You can post a snapshot of your workspace too.

Hi, I'm having the exact same problem.

The preview page just shows the below code.

<!DOCTYPE> <html> <head> <meta charset="utf-8"> <title>Ruth Kelly | Photographer</title> <link rel="stylesheet" href="css/normalize.css"> <link href='http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Changa+One|Open+Sans:400italic,700italic,400,700,800' rel='stylesheet' type='text/css'> <link rel="stylesheet" href="css/main.css"> </head>
<body> <header> <a href="index.html" id="logo"> <h1>Ruth Kelly</h1> <h2>Photographer</h2></a>
<nav> <ul> <li><a href="index.html" class ="selected">Portfolio</a></li> <li><a href="about.html">About</a></li> <li><a href="contact.html">Contact</a></li> </ul> </nav> </header> <div id="wrapper"> <section> <ul id="gallery"> <li><a href="img/numbers-01.jpg"><img src="img/numbers-01.jpg" alt=""</li> <p>Example 1</p></a> <li><a href="img/numbers-02.jpg"><img src="img/numbers-02.jpg" alt=""</li> <p>Example 2</p></a> <li><a href="img/numbers-06.jpg"><img src="img/numbers-06.jpg" alt=""</li> <p>Example 3</p></a> <li><a href="img/numbers-09.jpg"><img src="img/numbers-09.jpg" alt=""</li> <p>Example 3</p></a> <li><a href="img/numbers-12.jpg"><img src="img/numbers-12.jpg" alt=""</li> <p>Example 3</p></a> </ul> </section> <footer> <a href="http://facebook.com/ruthykelly"><img src="img/facebook-wrap.png" alt="Facebook Logo" class="social-icon"></a> <a href="http://twitter.com/rky21"><img src="img/twitter-wrap.png" alt="Twitter Logo" class="social-icon"></a> <p>© 2015 Ruth Kelly.</p> </footer> </div> </body> </html>

Please help, thanks!

Hi Ruth,

Was it working up to a certain point?

What browser are you using?

Hi Ruth, for starters, you are mssing both an opening HTML and an opening Body tag. I would start there.
