Code Editor shows keeps showing solution to the previous challenge, can't move further

Tell us what’s happening:
Describe your issue in detail here.

I can’t seem to move on to the next challenge on the Responsive Web Design, HTML - CSS curriculum, it keeps showing the code to the previous challenge instead of the new code to the present challenge. I tried resetting all code too, but that doesn’t work either, it just shows exactly the same thing after clicking the reset button.
I can’t move further if each challenge keeps showing the solution for the previous one I have already solved. For instance, this challenge about ‘Linking external pages with Anchor elements’ is showing the solution for ‘Add images to your Website’ challenge on the code editor. And it’s the same thing for all previously solved challenges; each keeps showing a solution to the challenge before it and not the template for that new challenge.
I have cleared cache and switched twice from Chrome to Safari and back to Chrome, still the same issue. Tried other browsers to no avail. I am a bit frustrated as I hoped to have gone far by now.

  **Your code so far**

Right, I think that’s what it’s supposed to do. You’re slowly building out that page, adding something new with each challenge.

Have to tried adding what the instructions tell you to add? They left a big space there above the image for you to add your link. After that, on the next challenge, you’ll do some more work on it.

I have gone through a couple of challenges and for each one, a new template to be edited shows up on the code editor. This issue only just started recently, where it shows the already completed solution for the previous challenge instead of the new template for the new challenge.
Yes, I have also tried to add what the instructions say to add. but it’s not moving further as well. The next challenge just shows what I had already done and not the new template.

I don’t know what to say. The starter code for this challenge is the solution to the previous challenge. I literally just took the stater code from this challenge, went to the previous challenge, and pasted it in, and it passed.

As to not being able to pass this challenge, can we see what you are trying? What you have posted is the starter code. Can we see your attempted solution?

I’m suspecting that you saw what you thought was the solution to the previous challenge (it essentially is but is also the template for this one) and assumed that that was why you couldn’t pass. I suspect that it is the code you are trying to add to solve the challenge. If we can see that, we can help. Or at least confirm that it should pass.
