Ok so here is my pen https://codepen.io/mboesiger/pen/aWezrO
I am having an extremely hard time understanding APIs so any nudge in the right direction would be really useful. I know I am missing something in the JS but I have no idea what and I just cant seem to wrap my head around it.
Secondly, you need to change the api url to “https” because codepen is https now.
Both these errors can be discovered by using the browser console, CTRL-SHFT-J in most browsers.
Oh my god. Thank you so much. It worked. I am so ecstatic right now.
Except now it only loads the same quote over and over, even though I have cache set to false…
It’s loading new quotes each time for me.
I am so ecstatic right now.
Oh yeah. We all know that feeling. Beat your head against the wall for hours, and then all of a sudden, everything falls into place. Ahhhhhhhh.
Yes I fixed the same quote issue shortly after that comment. Turns out I put the cache:false; too low.
And yes I almost felt like the guy in the picture with his hand through the monitor. It is amazing though when things fall into place.
