50 First Dates on free code camp


I would like to know why each time I sign into free code camp I have to start over even though I get the check marks after each challenge. Its very time consuming. Please help! Thanks!

There are two different types of saved progress for 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.

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.

Thank you very much for your help. I was able to progress with your advice. Thank you!:blush::sunny:

Is there a map like this for the Beta version?

If you click “Explore the curriculum” you get a popup map.

Yep. Use that all of the time.

The Beta version of the code is completely missing the filled in circles and faded out text indicating which sections you have done. It’s all still there for my old version, and this is even during sessions. It’s not a cookie issue, nor a browser setting issue. I’ve done help desk for years, including explaining these issues to end users and helping them change their settings.

The Beta version doesn’t visually track progress at all. I’d assumed it was functionality that just hadn’t been implemented yet.
