Random Quote Generator - Codepen trouble


I am having a problem running my Random Quote Generator on Codepen: https://codepen.io/sidor2/pen/JOMpgL?editors=1010.

It does work in VS Code and in JS bin. I tried adding and removing different libraries but without success. I would appreciate any help.


I ran into a similar problem, my pen worked and then didn’t!

I think this was down to codepen changing policy about loading only over https in my case. It took my a while to figure out why.

try changing your request to: https://cors-anywhere.herokuapp.com/http://quotes.stormconsultancy.co.uk/quotes/random.json

If you open the web dev tools in the browser when loading your pen (or clicking the button) you are generating an error in the console:

GET https://quotes.stormconsultancy.co.uk/random.json net::ERR_INSECURE_RESPONSE

I’m not sure if this is the best work around, but it worked for me :slight_smile:

Thank you very much for your help! It worked instantly. Happy coding!
