Codecademy courses not working


#1

Hello,

I am an avid user of this website. After completing the HTML and CSS track, I decided to try some more advanced courses.
Unfortunately, many of these great course will not load. The issue is the same for all of them: the area where I type the code will not load. The top area simply says "Connecting to Codecademy. The course where this issue persists are the following:

Ruby (which used to work for me)
python
Ruby on Rails
Ruby on Rails-Authentication
Angular JS 1.X
Command Line
All three SQL courses
Java
Git

I am currently using Chrome 50.0.2661.102 on Windows 10. My username is cloudPro77011.

Thank you!

A firewall sounds like a likely suspect
If I were you I'd try connecting through Tor
https://www.torproject.org/projects/torbrowser.html.en
Simply trying another browser (firefox) is probably worth a shot first

We have had a couple of people report this sort of connecting problem. So far I haven't found any one thing that works.

Could I get you to try something.

You can modify your email address and use that to sign up for a new Codecademy account. For example, if your email was name@example.com, you can modify it to name+new@example.com, and then sign up for a new Codecademy account using name+new@example.com.

Try creating a new account and see if you still have the same connecting problem with that.

Thanks for the suggestion. Same problem :(.

Well, that's one thing checked, we know it isn't your account.

Are you able to try the Tor Browser as @ionatan suggested?

It works on Microsoft Edge. Thanks for all the help!

That is not an often heard response. :wink:

Your Chrome must have had some unusual thing going on there.
