Can't delete anything

Tell us what’s happening:
I can’t delete anything when I make a mistake so I have to start the code over everytime

Your code so far

  <p>Click here to view more <a href="#">cat photos</a>.</p>
  <a href="#"><img src="" alt="A cute orange cat lying on its back."></a>
  <p>Things cats love:</p>
    <li>cat nip</li>

  <p>Top 3 things cats hate:</p>
    <li>flea treatment</li>
    <li>other cats</li>
  <form action="/submit-cat-photo">

Are you having this problem on a mobile device, or a computer?

I’m using a tablet kindle fire don’t have a computer

I think that is what is causing the problem. The code editor used in FCC is not mobile friendly, and I believe that there are extra issues in terms of Kindle Fire virtual keyboards. You might be able to solve the issue by connecting an extrernal keyboard. I believe that FCC contributors are actively working on making all of FCC much more mobile-friendly, but that takes a lot of time and work.

Oh, I see , I thought it might be because I am using a kindle , wasn’t sure tho. I’ve gotten almost through the beginner courses with this issue , just hate having to start over because of simple mistakes , it’s taking me a lot longer to get through them , have any of you guys used these gained skills in a real world application ?

Does the Kindle/mobile issue prevent you from replacing the whole contents of the editor with pasted text? If so, you might be able to keep a working copy in an editor. I haven’t tried this, so I can’t make any promises. I can certainly see how this would be very frustrating, especially as you move on to more complex challenges.

In terms of the skills taught by FCC, I use them 40 hours a week at my job working on real world applications.

No, I have to write everything out myself it’s not bad with simpler things , but it’s time consuming , did you have your job before you started learning or after ?

I was already a software developer, but I discovered that I would be moved to a web developer role at about the same time that I discovered FCC (this was 4 years and 2 jobs ago).

So if I’m trying to learn myself , I’ve read that web design is the easiest way to start out do you think this is the best way for someone new and trying to learn to start out ? And is it worth ? Sorry for the questions lol . Just curious !

I think that FCC is an absolutely amazing resource, especially when you compliment it with other resources and active involvement in programming communities. I am very glad that I pursued a career change and I think that the four years and thousands of dollars that I spent learning the old-school way, so for me spending time learning for free through FCC would have been worth it as well. I would argue that even if someone doesn’t want to pursue a career as a programmer, today’s world is one where better understanding of how computers work provides more insight into an ecosystem that we are already a part of.

That’s good , thank you , I’ve heard people say with technological always developing and getting better , it’s a good thing to get into , I’m a laborer/metal fabricator by trade and the days I’ve spent coming home and watching tv is endless lol , so I’ve decided to look into things that can help further my career or even turn into something more then I can even imagine , I’ve been taking the time to learn about new things , filled a note book with new things I’ve been studying on my own like law and things along those lines , just discovered this the other night and I’ve already written five pages of notes , last night I started at around 11 and before I knew it it was five in the morning , couldn’t believe it lol . But thanks for your insight glad to talk to you !!
