Angular ng-view or ng-include not working

Issue

I’ve been working on one of the courses on Coursera for learning full stack web development (preview ver), and have been facing some troubles with ng-view and ng-controller.

I don’t get any errors when I open my websites but ng-view or ng-controller seems to not change the views on my website.

This is my index page:

    <!-- The above 3 meta tags *must* come first in the head; any other head 
         content must come *after* these tags -->

I’ve been stuck here for the past week. Help would be much appreciated!

Solution

How do you access the site?

Are you adding the hash “#” next to the index.html location?

I mean, if you run this at localhost, inside a folder:

http://localhost/folder/#/contactus ?

Remember that AngularJS uses the hash to detect routes.
