Tell us what’s happening:

The second user story says:

After completing this project you can copy your public glitch url (to the homepage of your app) into this screen to test it!

But copying the link doesn’t do anything. It only allowes me to click the “I’ve completed this challenge”-button. So, how do I actually test it?

Also, why do I have to provide both a github link AND a glitch.com link?

Your code so far

The projects are tested manually by someone on the team to verify your certificate after completion. It would be up to you to make sure it works before you submit it. Go through the user stories and ensure it does everything listed.

You’re able to host your projects anywhere, though glitch.com is encouraged for simplicity. Since someone may need to point to their code and a running instance separately, we need two different links.

Thanks for the clarification :slight_smile:
