Course Wide errors:
Error Level: 6(See "Additional Information" for more information on Error Levels)
It’s been brought to my attention on several occasions, as well as experiencing the error myself that the PHP courses have a bug that mostly involves “for” loops. I will be discussing a few possibilities below as to how to fix this error, as well as an explanation as to how I believe this error to be occurring.
Description of Error:
When programming for loops in PHP many individuals will experience the website crashing, refreshing at a frequented rate, and being unable to submit code for the lesson. The lesson will error out, and not allow the user to pass and requires an inordinate amount of patience to pass. This error is most likely caused by the courses constant update system; which causes any action by the user to potentially crash the browser.
Current solutions to the Problem:The way I was able to pass the course, whenever using for loops more specifically, was to comment out all of my code until it was completed, and then uncommenting the code from the bottom of the for loop to the top of the for loop. This still sometimes caused crashes of my browser so my answer may have simply been a coincidence. I have not heard of any other way to complete the course.
Proposed Solution:If possible, I believe the solution to the problem would be to have the contractor for the course redo the system just so that it doesn't have a constant refresh rate. I'm not assuming this would be a simple fix, however it is in my opinion that this must be done for the reasons I have supplied in this post.
For the assurance of further use in the PHP course, it is of many members concern that action must be taken for this to correct the errors presented in this topic. Many individuals are having the same issues and are incapable of passing lessons due to the examples I have provided.
Thank you in advance for your cooperation and expedient reply.
