I have posted countless little bugs in the UI and got no response so I’ll post to the forum and see if anyone is listening from CC here.

here’s a link to a screenshot
Google Photos
the instructions say go to X dir
you can see that I’m in X
I cannot progress until I use the exact command from CC.
That is poor programming on the part of CC
it’s a simple IF THEN
example pseudo code:
if user is in X dir then allow NEXT button


I can confirm the same bug.

I hope @Admins can fix it soon so new learners won’t face the same issue.


I’ve been experience similar if not the same bugs in this current lesson and a few of the previous ones. This is extremely frustrating as I just purchased another month of Codecademy pro. :frowning_face:


i had the same problem but i fix it by put a space before comedy

cd …/…/ comedy


so weirdly even though i was in the comedy folder and had the same issue you can fix this by just copy pasting this:

cd …/…/comedy

into the terminal (i was already in /comedy) and it just then accepts and moves on.
