Hi there,

New to codecademy and just working through the Angular.js training. I’m on Routing II and the web browser section doesn’t seem to be showing what it’s meant to. I’m making the various code changes and there are no errors coming back, but all I can see is this blank screen with some randome characters on it. It doesn’t change at all, throughout the section. Anything you could to help?


Please post your code from index.html and app.js.

Hi, thanks very much for your reply . Hopefully i’ve used the correct format, to post the code.
Kind regards,

      <div class="container">
        <a href="/#/">
          <img src="img/logo.svg" width="80" height="80"> &#12501; &#65387; &#12488; &#12501; &#65387; &#12488;

    <!-- Modules -->

    <script src="js/controllers/PhotoController.js"></script>

    <!-- Services -->
    <script src="js/services/photos.js"></script>

var app = angular.module('GalleryApp', ['ngRoute']);
app.config(function ($routeProvider) {
  	.when('/', {
    	controller: 'HomeController',
    	templateURL: 'views/home.html'
  	.when('/photos/:id', {
    	controller: 'PhotoController',
    	templateURL: 'views/photo.html'
    	redirectTo: '/'

Ok, that is something I can work with :slight_smile: There are two problems in your code.

First one, in app.js you have to change templateURL to templateUrl (in both routes).

Ok, now run your code. You should see different output, but it still does not look quite right. The logo (with text that means “Photo” in Japanese :slight_smile:) was pushed to the bottom of the page. This tells us that something is wrong with our ng-view in index.html.

Previous exercise, step one:

In index.html under the .header section, type in the code exactly as you see here:
<div ng-view></div>

When we use words like “below”, “under” in reference to the blocks of code I am lost. And it looks like I am not the only one having this problem :slight_smile: In this step they wanted you to place this code below the whole header block, take a look:

<div class="header">
  <div class="container">
    <a href="/#/">
      <img src="img/logo.svg" width="80" height="80"> &#12501; &#65387; &#12488; &#12501; &#65387; &#12488;
<div ng-view></div>

Thanks ever so much. I’ve made those changes now and it’s allowed me to complete the course :slight_smile:
