no worries, you asked in the right place.
If you take a look at the instructions again you will see the following:

Working on these challenges will involve you writing your code using one of the following methods:

  • Clone this GitHub repo and complete these challenges locally.
  • Use our Replit starter project to complete these challenges.
  • Use a site builder of your choice to complete the project. Be sure to incorporate all the files from our GitHub repo.

Personally, I just picked the 2nd option “Use our Replit starter project” because that is what I’m most familiar with. So if you are unsure how to use github or how to go about starting, that’s the one I would suggest you try.

Once you’re there (on Replit) hopefully things will be clearer.

Thats the one I chose too. But I am definitely not finding things to be clearer. Ive clicked on everything within sight and cant find where these challenges are.

so the replit is the code

and the “challenge” is to modify the code as per the given instructions which are back on the fCC page (which you linked to originally in your post).

If you read a bit in the original page you linked to you will see they want you to do something with the json file.

Are you saying that the only task for this project is to add author info to the package.json file?

yes (though technically all the work to setup the live app is included as well, some people may not use replit)

OK and I just upload the replit link to fCC?

I clicked on the 3 little dots associated with the package.json file and selected the copy link option and then uploaded that link to fCC. Is this correct?

My test is failing and I’m near certain that I have the syntax correct. So now I’m wondering if its because I’m not uploading the Live App URL like it says I should be doing. If that is the reason why this is failing, then I have no idea what the Live App URL even is.

actually what you need to do after you edit the json on replit is publish the replit
(there’s a button that lets you do that there)
Then once published, you must run it to get the new app website link (it is a link that lets anyone connect to your app)

Finally that link is what you give the fCC challenge to test it.
(but wait a few minutes after publishing because it may not go live-live right away)
