I’m doing the Random Quote Machine projects and to be honest I’m completely lost since I have only a very vague idea of how to go about it. I don’t want to peek at the code given in the example because I want to solve this myself, but since this is the first project I do with jQuery, I need some help!
Here’s what I did so far:
and it isn’t working. Can someone point me in the right direction?
Thanks so much!
P.S.: ignore how ugly it looks, I just wanna get it to work before I add the CSS and the tweet button.
In the console it says $ is not defined so I guess you didn’t import JQUERY. In addition, after that you will get a cross origin error. Do you want to tackle that or do you want a solution?
I just added this:
to my html head element because silly me, I forgot to do that, but it still isn’t working.
Now I’m getting this error:
Failed to load https://api.forismatic.com/api/1.0/?method=getQuote&format=jsonp&jsonp=parseQuote&lang=en: No ‘Access-Control-Allow-Origin’ header is present on the requested resource. Origin ‘https://s.codepen.io’ is therefore not allowed access.

Oh right, sorry. Do you have any resources where I can read about this issue and how to solve it myself?
You basically have it solved it’s just a silly mistake. Has to do with parseQuote in your url
Aww man, major facepalm
var url = "https://api.forismatic.com/api/1.0/?method=getQuote&format=jsonp&jsonp=?&lang=en";
Thank you so much!!
