Completed Project Code

Hello, I just completed the CatPhotoApp project which is the first project in the HTML series. When I go to my profile and look under settings, I notice that the project is listed as completed and includes the date that each step in the project was completed. The only problem is that when I click on the activity, I cannot see my completed code. All the code is deleted, and it asks me to solve the problem again as if I have not done the work. Where is my work? I want to know where I can view my completed project code for CatPhotoApp. Thank you.

Challenge: Define the Head and Body of an HTML Document

I’ve edited your post for readability. When you enter a code block into a forum post, please precede it with a separate line of three backticks and follow it with a separate line of three backticks to make it easier to read.

You can also use the “preformatted text” tool in the editor (</>) to add backticks around text.

See this post to find the backtick on your keyboard.
Note: Backticks (`) are not single quotes (’).

I think the code does not persist. By the way, what you are working on is not a project, instead they were lessons that kinda create a project. Don’t worry!

The real projects are the last 5 you do at the end of each certification.

The problem is that if I go to the trouble of writing the code for the activity, I do not want it to be deleted. I want to be able to see it in front of me and showcase it on my profile. I see checkmarks saying I have completed the activity, but all my work is gone.

There are two different types of saved progress for Free Code Camp: your profile and your browser cache.

A list of your completed challenges is saved to your account in the FCC database. You can see the list of completed challenges by looking at your public portfolio. With a growing curriculum already over 1,400 lessons and a community of millions of people, FCC does not store every solution to every challenge in its database. When you complete a challenge, there is a modal that gives you the option to download your solution. This gives you the option to save a copy of any solution that you may want to reference later. There are some challenges which are classified as projects required for certifications. Your solutions to those can be viewed on your settings page.

Your in-editor code is saved in your browser’s local storage. Recent in-progress code from the challenge editor is also saved in your local browser cache when you run tests. If you are completing lessons and do not see your recent code, then your local storage has been cleared or something is preventing FCC from writing to your browser’s storage. This could be a browser setting, a privacy extension, or a browser version incompatibility. 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 which allows for versioning.
