I’m running into an issue where I got through the instructions (also had to create the erb file manually), and it won’t let me move forward even though I’m viewing the page in the browser. Anyone else experience this? Tried refreshing, opening in my actual browser, etc.

thank you for the solution bad.banana


I’m just jumping in to bump this issue.
You still have to create the home.html.erb file yourself, as opposed to what the instructions say.
