Why are my links not working?

Recommended Posts

I have just started the Complete Web Design video tutorials. I was almost successful in completing the code for the first web site but somehow some of my links are not working on some of my pages. I will post the code for the index page below. The tables tutorial link is not working on that page. I have 2 more pages with broken links but I will wait to see what response I get here and try to fix the others if I can. I am pretty new here so I will appreciate any help that can be offered from this forum. Thanks!

Do you actually have a file called "tablesTutorial.html" in the very same folder you main document is in? And take note - file names are case sensitive - so tablesTutorial.html is not the same as Tablestutorial.html.

Also -- this often happens to beginners when they are first getting started -- check to make sure your files are named properly. Both Windows and Mac by default hide the file extension, so it's possible that your file is actually named filename.html.txt rather than filename.html.

Hi Andrea

 

Thanks for responding. The file name is tablesTutorial.html. I learnt this format from the video tutorial. I have another file name which is productList.html and it works. I can try the format you suggested to see if it works.

 

Thanks again will check back.
