Hey! Did something change on FCC Website?

Hi everyone! I hope someone can help me.
I lost all progress on the “responsive web design” I think.

Also, the course layout looks different. Is something recently changed?

What’s happened?

The new Responsive Web Design curriculum content has been released.

FAQ:

  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.

Hi ya!
Thanks for your help.

One issue now is that I can’t submit my projects the old way. When I go on the last project I get the new editor and I can’t see the field where I can paste my codepen project URL and submit it.

Am I missing something?

Amigo, estoy en la misma situacion, tengo un proyecto en codepen pero no se como o donde vincular este al nuevo editor, sin embargo en la parte de certificación me muestra un proyecto de codepen que realice antes de la actualizacion lo cual me genera mas confusión y considero que al finalizar el curso se va a ver un poco desorganizado al re dirigir diferentes editores…

Just copy and paste the code you have on Codepen into the editor. The HTML goes into the index.html and the CSS in styles.css.

Remember to link to the CSS file as explained in bullet point #5 in the FAQ.
