I’ve run the api calls but the tasks aren’t marking themselves as done so I can’t move forward


I’ve been having the same issue. Also emailed. Frustrating to have something out of your control completely stall your progress when you’re paying for the “pro” edition membership.


Also having this issue. My API call was correct, but just to be sure, I copied and pasted the call from the “Hint” and still no response in the page.


Same. I reported the bug and hopefully they work on it asap.


I am facing the same issue. COuld they resolve it?


Same—api calls don’t result in the task reading as marked.


samething here! how can we move ?


They have not fixed this yet. I cannot move forward either, although my code was correct. Very frustrating.


Same issue. Does anyone knows how to flag this


I have the same issue as all of you. Given this thread goes back quite some time I would have expecte that the issue would have been solved now.

I have reported it on the page (Get Unstuck → Bugs). Hopefully this will trigger a response.


I am also having the same issue

Seems to have been fixed, mostly by just having the next button active from the start.
