I'm on to working on my extra HTML and CSS pages for PSET5. I've run HTTP-SERVER, clicked on Port 8080 and selected Open where upon I get a directory tree and select the HTML file I want to run. Firstly when I make changes to the code and select save, the old code gets retained and loaded instead of the revision. I'm also right clicking on the HTML page file to try and run it, but the SERVE item is always greyed out.All I can do is go back to my still loaded page and hit refresh to run my page , but as mentioned, I don't get anything new loaded that reflects my new code. Any ideas ?
First, it sounds like your browser is aggressively caching the HTML, so when you load the page and it's old, try doing a hard-refresh. (hold down shift key and click the browser refresh button). That should force a fresh load.
Second, in the IDE, the "Serve" command only works for a directory, not a file, so try right-clicking on the folder name instead.
