- Basic Front End Dev - Build a Tribute Page https://www.freecodecamp.org/challenges/build-a-tribute-page
Objective: Build a CodePen app that is functionally similar to this: https://codepen.io/FreeCodeCamp/full/NNvBQW/.
First of all, up to this point, responses had to be EXACT. If it said
.addClass I had to get all the caps etc correct.
Secondly, I found out why the page says to not look at the demo source… because the demo uses features that haven’t been introduced, and cannot be replicated with the features that were introduced.
So basically “make this page that can’t be made” with the assumption, based on previous lessons, that it should be at least “a very close replication”. I’ve a bit of experience with web dev, and I could tell by looking at the demo that there wasn’t enough info in the previous lessons to replicate the page. You can get fairly close, and if you spent a ton of time, noodling with it, you could replicate it. . . but the demo cheats by using bootstrap features not given in the lessons.
Ultimately, being unable to come close to the demo with the info provided is annoying, frustrating. It’s even worse with the 2nd demo in that section.
- Forum registration
Being a separate registration from the main site is annoying, especially since they both use Github OAuth.
