do you have a file named index.html? Of what you shared, i only see my first.html

spaces in html files i would recommend against, use underscores instead of spaces for naming files

no i have been all over the web looking for the answer to find a index.htiml file…this is the most promising website

also this code has worked the way it is now so i have no idea

Find the file, what? You should create the file, give it index as name and store it as type html

or rename my_first.html to index.html

index.html is just a naming convention the web agreed on to the index page, we can see this nicely on FB, going to facebook.com will get use the index page, this can be proven by going to facebook.com/index.php, its the same page

okay, for fb the extension is .php because the back-end language is php, but i couldn’t find an example real quick which uses .html
