Change in the responsive web design curriculum

Hi, I was just doing the last certification project in responsive web design (personal portfolio), went back to look something up and all my progress on other tasks was gone. When I went back to the personal portfolio task it was completely different, you cannot even do it in the Code Pen anymore. Was there an update in the curriculum and if so, is there any possibility to do the remaining project in code pen.

No you will have to do the project in the fcc page, you can copy/paste the code from codepen

Not exactly, there is a new curriculum, and the old curriculum is still there in the curriculum page. To see the old curriculum just scroll down the curriculum page to go down to the Legacy Responsive Web design course

You can look at this post for more info:

The new Responsive Web Design curriculum content has been released.


  1. Can I complete the old content?
  • Yes. The old content is still available, and has been moved to the bottom of the curriculum map and renamed to Responsive Web Design Legacy
  1. What will happen to my progress?
  • Nothing. Your past progress will still be available in the Responsive Web Design Legacy curricula
  1. Can I claim the old certificate?
  • The certifications are exactly the same. All you need to claim a certificate is to complete the 5 Certification Projects which are identical for both the Responsive Web Design and Responsive Web Design Legacy curricula
  1. Should I stop doing the legacy content, and just start over with the new content?
  • This is entirely up to you. Majority of the topics are the same - just taught in a different way. (See Project-Based Curricula)
  1. How do I use the new editor?
  • The new editor is as close to an external text editor as we wanted to get it. If the files for the challenge have been enabled, you can access the index.html and styles.css tabs which you should use for the respective code.
  • Two main differences between this editor and other online editors:
    • You need to link your styles.css file to your HTML (just like you would in real web-development), by adding the following line to the head of your HTML:
<link href="styles.css" />
    • You are encouraged to include the DOCTYPE, html, head and body tags for each project.

specifically, no - in this way freeCodeCamp can check more closely if learners have completed the user stories when they submit
