Treehouse: Grow your CSS skills. Land your dream job.

I’m told something is wrong with the StyleSheet?

    I **think** this is a CSS problem but honestly I have no clue.

    I see this CodePen buisness but I don’t understand how to use it or what would be useful in helping me convey my problem.

    Basically I made a site on Adobe Muse and put it online [Your text to link here…]( “here. “) As you can see, it’s not as it should be.

    I was told by HostGator when trying to get the bloody thing online to begin with that it was a problem with the style sheet? Is that really why it looks like that and how do I fix it?

    I dont’ even know where my Stylesheet is. I looked in the Muse Export folder but I don’t see a Stylesheet. There is a sitemap? I have a screen show but it seems I can’t add those here.

    Any help would be wonderful! I’m at a loss.

    Everything (images, css, js etc.) seems to be in the root folder instead of their own folder where they are expected to be (/images, /css, /scripts).

    i dont know whats the thing after .css extension? , that might be the problem

    It looks to me as though the resources (CSS files, images and script files) have not been uploaded to the correct folders.

    Therefore your page is not finding them where it expects them to be….so it breaks.

    Thank you everyone. Not sure I grasp wat everyone is saying but it sounds like I have things in the wrong folders? So like photos are all supposed to be in different folders?

    Muse should have done this for you but yes…it is generally accepted that there will be individual folders for all image files, all js files and all css files and that they are referenced by the HTML accordingly.

    This links to the css file called ‘site_global.css’ is in a folder called ‘css’.

    How did you get the HTML files onto your web server?

    I think I explained it crystal clear but here is an example:

    Your html links to:

    The actual file is here:

    Same is true for every css, js and image file you have.
