html hyperlinks

I am working with HTML on repl.it and i have added instructions for students to add a hyperlink. However the students are not able to test if the hyperlink actually works. How can I get around this?

They can put the code into a separate repl and run the code there, as the link would work. This is a compatibility issue between the old repl.it IDE on Classroom and the new repl.it IDE on the main site. There are in fact plans to update the Classroom IDE in the future, but for now I suggest using the regular IDE to copy+paste to and from to Classroom.

I have come back to this problem. I wish to send my students a html file with an image. I have created a separate html file for the students to do this. The file is in the IDE and not classroom. I have shared the file and it seems that the students can write over it. I have tried to make it private and share it and still the student seems to be writing over it.

@mralam4769 How are you sharing it? Are you sending a multiplayer link or the https://repl.it/@mralam4769/NewZealandhtml link?

@Vandesm14

i am now using https://repl.it/@mralam4769/NewZealandhtml link?
and going to get the students to fork the file

@mralam4769 Yes. So when they fork the file, they'll be able to edit the code on their own account. They are not able to edit the code on your repl specifically, but their own forked version.
