I am asking my students to create a multipage website. However, when they add a file and name it page2.html and run it, the code doesn't appear. Only the index.html code appears.
If we try including an internal link to the second page, it will run correctly.
How do we get it so that if we have the code for page 2 is displayed and we click run, we can see it work?
I'm not sure I understand what you're trying to do. Could you share a repl with an example?
@themaka I believe what he/she is saying is that she wants to be able to see the second page (in the repl terminal) by only running the website on the file he/she wants displayed
Edit: So like if i have an index and a page2 file, I could click in then page2 file (like i'm going to edit it) then when i hit run in that file it will show that page in the terminal. This way he/she
can avoid redirecting/ clicking and extra link
Just to be extra clear, sure i didn't need the extra explanation lol.
Tried working with html as well, not sure why it might not work but like TheDrone7 said it might not be supported currently, repl feedback could be useful to help them learn more about it though!
repl.it currently does not support changing which page is run, you could try this maybe:
Make your students make a list of links to different pages on index.html, so you can easily change which page you want to view. And also make them do their assignment on custom-named files, this way, it will be both organized and easy.
Ok make either a link to it on the main page or redirect it. It will always start on main page, but if u open it in a new tab and go to the second page u can just refresh to see it updated (once u run it).
@mroumani Yes. Using a little bit of js...
window.location.href="<pageName>" it will redirect to the other page upon opening it, Although u won't be able to open that page with the script on it bc soon as u open it it will go to the other (until u remove it, of course). This will also slow down the time for it to run a little bit though.
@mroumani There is if you look beside the Page URL in the Output there will be what looks like a sqaure with an arrow pointing out of it, it is right next to the pencil:
Click that and it will pop the webpage into a new tab.
