Workspace responding sporadically

Hi! So I posted earlier about my css file not linking properly to my html, it seemingly went out randomly then came back while I was working - in that suddenly after not making any major change, my preview was reflective of the css. It was working for the past few days and today for about 15 minutes then suddenly stopped.

To test this, I deleted my entire "main.css" file, saved, then previewed - it was exactly the same as before, as though I had not changed the css from when it had stopped working. I wouldn't mind posting my code, but from what I've looked at, it's all correct. Has anyone had an issue with the preview in workspaces simply not repsonding correctly?

always use sublime text 2 ..... workspaces are not permanent solution

Jaquelline, try forcing a cache refresh with Control + F5 on the webpage opened from Workspace. That could also be the issue, and I myself have experienced it a few times.

Would you describe it as updating "sluggishly"? I've been doing the Ruby course, and the console has some serious delays/lag some times. I'm not exactly sure what you could do to fix this, unfortunately. If the problem persists, emailing Treehouse Support will be your best option.

workspaces are working fine, i have completed the course , there must be a problem in code

I will object to that statement. If Jacquelline saves her main.css file, then opens the webpage to find it still styled, it can't be an issue with her code.

so it will be better if jacquelline will try that code in Sublime 2 , or post code in forum

Refreshing the cache worked! I was convinced something was wrong with my code until I deleted my css and nothing changed. Thanks for the help! Was getting so frustrated!

Fantastic! Good luck with the rest of the course! :)

so work spaces may cause problem so just use any other editor like Sublime text 2 ,,,,,, and then preview in your browser ..... and if still not working ... post your complete html and css code
