Switching Browsers Loses Progress

Switching Browsers Loses Progress


When I switch from one browser to another some of my progress on the FCC Map disappears. I assume FCC uses cookies to track my participation. Can I sync cookies, or am I stuck with one browser?


Definitely sounds weird. I would have thought progress would be tracked in a db, since on your FCC profile page it date stamps completion of exercise and solution…

I do notice that sometimes based on the browser caching I can goto an exercise and see my solution and other time it loads as if it has reset… but I can always goto my profile page to see my solution if I need to review it…

So I would have assumed when you view the map it would highlight accurately which exercises you have completed based on what’s it storing for the profile page…

Curious as to the root cause/solution.


Your completed challenges are saved to your profile, so you can jump to your previous solutions that way. In-progress code is saved in your local browser cache, so if you are changing browsers or clearing your cache regularly you’ll have to use freecodecamp.com/map to navigate to your next challenge. Especially you get to more complicated challenges that may take multiple sessions, I strongly recommend saving your in-progress work outside of the browser cache. This is a good opportunity to learn the ins and outs of your GitHub account, but you can also just save locally or use a service like repl.it which allows for versioning.
