i have resolve this issue

the key its server.js

fcc fetch code with _api/filename when check solution . so the glitch project must have cros settings

Hello. Thank you, i tried that but i get a timeout erro

Try copying server.js from github into a server.js in glitch

Hello @JohnPA, The error remains.

I still can’t get this to work either. FCC, can you please help with what is going on with glitch?

how can i help u ? ???

Sorry, I fixed the issue. For those that can’t get it working:
Clone the fcc github from the link provided.
Create a new project on Glitch and select the option to clone from repository.
Then copy the link to the fcc GitHub.
Next Drag and drop the files from your cloned copy into glitch.(you can’t drag folders, so open the views folder on your cloned copy and drag and drop the index.html file.)
Next go to server.js file on glitch that you added earlier and change the file path of index.html by removing the views directory.
It should be:

Sorry, I still can’t get this to work… There must be something broken:

I tried this with my new glitch repo at:

This is what I get all the time…

Drives me crazy, since I have no idea what I might be doing wrong.

Also: it took me a while to figure out, what exactly to put in the submission field… A simple explanation with example would help…

Thank you!
