Codecademy Bug: "file_name" has been moved, reset your files

Hi, forum

Pictures of 3 screens for your convenience:

I faced with an error

“file_name” has been moved. This will cause problems with this exercise, please move “file_name” back to its original location, or reset your files

It suggests to click the “reset files button,” After that, I see a blank space with a button to upload my file. With a little hope, I uploaded 3 blank .sqlite files with the same names as in a lesson: “db, output and social”, but it doesn’t work.
If I click the “Get Unstuck -> Get Code Solution” it simply makes the “Next” button yellow and allows me to move to the next lesson. However, the next lesson doesn’t even suggest to click the “reset files button”, everything except the task window is just blank.

Please help.


Same thing happen to me, @dmytrozmiievskyi . No reason for me to show my screen shots, they look just like yours :laughing:. I’m sure it will get fixed soon.

Give it a try, I was able to work thru the lesson this morning. :slightly_smiling_face:

Well, the problem is solved. However, there is another one: you can run any code to pass checkpoints, so they don’t check if code is written correctly.
I can come to terms with this fact, but sure it’s something admins should know.

Hello @dmytrozmiievskyi,

It sounds like you’ve moved forward in the lesson. I just ran thru the lesson and it validates the code now. :slightly_smiling_face:
