everytime I try to deploy my website, the system doesn’t do anything. Instead of checking to see if my work is right or not, it does nothing, so I am unable to move on or get a solution to my issue. any tips or ways to fix this?


Did you find a solution to this issue? I am encountering the same problem.

Stuck at step 4 Add the Remote. I’ve followed the instructions but the exercise doesn’t recognise that I’ve done what it asked and I can’t progress.


Exactly the same here, can’t continue with this lesson because of this issue.


unfortunately I never found a way to fix this. i was learning this for a school project (due in February) and had to time crunch so I couldn’t.


@mykash7326 @tatiana.ovchar.firef @jamesbudge8648399444 I eventually found an old post last night

I have no clue how to initialize my repo. I tried using the solution, but it does nothing, it just checks off the boxes and lets’s you move to the next step without accomplishing anything.


I’m having the same issue as everyone else, slightly concerned that this was first raised six months ago and it seems to still be happening. Hopefully at some point someone at Codecademy will wonder why nobody seems to finish this course…


I have no idea how to do this. Glad i’m not the only one, though.


Seems to be some kind of bug. Also stuck on this part - can’t move past it.
