try editing the APP_ORIGIN in your .env.local
if you look at the front end again, are you getting an error in the dev console? perhaps a CORS error?
you should also check and change the API_HOST in /packages/front-end/.env.local

ya, one sec - since its docker... APP_ORIGIN and API_HOST should be changable in the environment

1. edit the file docker-compose.yml 2. find the line under 'growthbook:' where it says 'environment:' - MONGODB_URL and add below it the two lines:
- APP_ORIGIN=http://<my ip>:3000
- API_HOST=http://<my ip>:3100
make sure the spacing matches
then restart the docker containers
(docker-compose.yml will be in the root of where you cloned your growthbook code)
