if your research didn’t help you in solving the challenge, use the “Ask for Help” button, and then write a few paragraphs for the “Tell us what’s happening” part, so that you can explain what’s going wrong
Usually people are more helpful in giving hints than the guide, as they would be tailored to you
One little thing that helped me when starting out- if you do decide to copy some code you’ve found online, don’t copy & paste it.
Bring it up in another tab, and actually type out every single line into your work. This forces you to take your time looking at each line, and it’s amazing how much you can understand from something that seemed so confusing at first.
Doing this also helps reinforce your muscle memory when it comes to laying out code, like where all the brackets & semi colons should go.
