No error messages on incorrectly answered steps (intermittent)

Hi! I recently started the JavaScript curriculum. I’m running into the limits of my understanding, so I’m obviously submitting more wrong answers. Intermittently, when I submit an answer, I get NO feedback – it doesn’t say my submission does or doesn’t pass. The animation shows my click, but doesn’t proceed to a pass or error message.

As far as I can determine, this only happens with incorrect submissions.

I’m wondering if this is only me or happening for others. (And what, if anything, I should be doing to try to solve it.)

Hey reset you editor and start over, also open your console to get a little feedback when you submit your answer.

I feel your pain. I’ve experienced this a few times. Im currently working on Building a calorie counter step 48 and I get the same as you, no feedback when you click on the check your code button. I’ve spent about a day on this one step. I’ve
tried refreshing it, resetting it,
closing the browser, then opening the browser. I even tried another web browser. (Chrome then Edge) Feedback is very important. So, it is frustrating when you don’t get any feedback after trying to submit an answer.

Hi! Most frequently when nothing happens when you click the button, it’s because your syntax is missing something. Something like forgetting to close a parentheses or curly brackets. This is also where the console comes in handy. It can help show which line is not entered correctly.

Thank you all for your responses! First, I’m glad it’s not just me, and that there’s an explanation, and I appreciate the tip to go to the console to see if I can determine what’s happening!

After spending a day on it yesterday. I decided to go to step 49 copy all and paste in step 48. It was something above had got changed. @danielbailey0629 Thanks for the reminder to check the console log.
