Issue with my website
maxina (61)

So in my website, I have a folder with an html file and a js file. For some reason, when I run it, and go to the website, it take my html code and puts it in the js code for some reason.

Any idea of why this would happen?

in the games folder i have an index.html file and js file when you run the code and go in inspect element in sources, youll see it puts the html code in the js file and gives and error

@maxina

here is why

you never handled the case when it was games/main.js and always served the index.html by default.

Try using express.static like this:

app.use("/games", express.static(__dirname + "/games"));

@Coder100 do i just replace that with the app.get code that i have?
