I am doing some beginning tutorials and the site is not saving my work and having me start back at the beginning each time I log in. Any tips?
Did you try saving each challenge using ctrl+enter or via submit button? And if you open a challenge you have already did, do you see your code in?
I have problem when using submit button, it shows in the map that the challenge is not complete, but when I access the challenge, the code was saved. Using ctrl+enter helped me.
Are you talking about your completed projects not showing up properly? You can see them in your account, underneath your activity.
the only thing showing in my account under activity is my question & your responses. Nothing in regards to tutorials completed. have spent a lot of time working through the tutorials & keep having to start over each time. I have saved the challenges both ways that Hammy described
There are two different types of progress being saved going on at Free Code Camp: your profile and your browser cache.
Your completed challenges are all saved to your account in the FCC database. You can see the list of completed challenges and also the last submitted solutions by looking at your profile page.
If your profile does not include your completed challenges, here is my troubleshooting advice:
- Double check that you used the same method to sign in. Try logging out and back in again with the original method.
- Double check that you aren’t on the beta site now and that you didn’t create your original account on the beta site by accident. (Yes, this does happen.)
- Contact [email protected] . The most likely scenario is that your account got duplicated when you signed in and you are being logged into the new one. When that happens, someone on the team can merge your accounts. Please be patient when emailing the team. Remember that there are thousands of campers, a small team, and this is all volunteer-driven.
Your progress tracking (map) is saved in your browser’s local storage. In-progress code is also saved in your local browser cache. 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 as 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.
The forum account is different than the one in freecodecamp.org. Your projects are saved there.
Thank you! That was the problem!
