Wait @danraphv, what’s wrong with this lesson?

i can´t go through in code academy, i’m stuck on the first lesson and the next button won’t activate

What browser are you using, and have you tried reloading your page, restarting your browser, clearing your cookie cache, and restarting your computer?

I can’t click on the next button. Using Google Chrome

I’m having the same problem. I’m using Google Chrome…

Have you tried all the recommend solutions?

i am also using google chrome, and not able to move to the next slide in the lesson. should i do something? its not mentioned in the instructions

This link will take you to the second lesson/exercise…



why can’t i just move to next execise after watching the gif?

Unfortunately this is an issue with the lesson.
The bug has been reported and engineers have been informed.

The work around is: Refresh the page / Come out of the lesson, go back / Get Help > solution

So how do you move on in the lesson??
