appreciate helping hands...



Add a semi-colon here:

So you have:

$scope.minusOne = function(index) {
  $scope.products[index].dislikes +=1;


I think you may change the comma i mark above . i use "//" to mark the position.
You can change 3 commas and add 1 semicolon in your code
I hope it will help.
The function of comma and semicolon is different. comma can be used inside of the [{} , {} , {} ],but may not be used between $scope.x $scope.y ...


Very many thanks for half solution...

what about solution to error in index.html due to which NEXT button
remains inactive... The error reads as <Did you update the p
class=likes>? And the problematic code snippet in index.htm as given
below for your ready reference...


Please have a look to trace bug...


My code in index.html is the same with you.
maybe you can try to reload the page or try to change a browser.
