Random Quote Machine.. HELP please!

,Hi guys, I have been struggling for a while now and can’t, by the life of me, get my random quote machine to produce a quote…

here is my JS code:

function newQuote(){
  $.getJSON("http://quotesondesign.com/wp-json/posts?filter[orderby]=rand&callback=", function(data) {
    $("#text").html(data[0].content + " - " + data[0].title);
  $("#get-quote").on("click", function() {

what am I doing wrong!? :((

Do you have a codepen for this? It’s easier for others to figure out what’s wrong if they can see it.

Anyway I’ve edited your post for readability. When you enter a code block into the forum, remember to precede it with a line of three backticks and follow it with a line of three backticks to make easier to read. See this post to find the backtick on your keyboard. The “preformatted text” tool in the editor (</>) will also add backticks around text.


Have you checked the browser console? Maybe you’re getting an error because the URL uses http.

Thank you so much, wasn’t even aware of the backtick trick!
Anyway, I just checked the browser console and that was exactly the problem, thank you!
