100 days of code

I keep having a hard time getting back to where I left off.

for example, I see the number where I left off but it doesn’t take me there. It takes me to the beginning of the lessons.

What am I doing wrong?

There are two different types of saved progress for Free Code Camp: your profile and your browser cache. However, there is also a known issue that may be affecting your account (see below).

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.

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.

Just went into my acct w a new iPad and I can’t locate where I left off.

You will need to go to learn.freecodecamp.org and use the curriculum map to go to the challenge that you want to do next.

Since you mentioned using an iPad, remember to use Chrome rather than the built in Safari browser.
