Site not letting me move on even though code is correct -- and where do I post my question?!?


#1


Replace this line with your code.

I have to reply to my own topic in order to post the question. The lesson said create 3 paragraphs and tell us about yourself. I did, and then it wouldn't let me move on, saying I can't have empty

tags. I don't have any empty

tags, they all have content. I'm not an idiot, but apparently this web site is.

And why does it keep stopping and asking for money? It was advertised as completely free.

HI about this

And why does it keep stopping and asking for money? It was advertised as completely free.

Yes it's free

if need help you should post your code with a link to the lesson I (we) could help you. youc an read this post to know how to format your code

This doesn't make any sense, it has stopped several times and asked me to pay for continuing the lessons (and had a section to enter my credit card information), and I have no idea what you mean about formatting code in my posts.

I have no need to format my code, or even post it. The code is correct, I typed 3

tags as instructed (with closing

tags) and included text between all of the tags. My question was, when I was finished it said I can't have any empty

tags, and wouldn't let me move on, but none of my

tags were empty.

If you must see one to answer my simple question, it looked like this:

This is the first paragraph. This p tag is not empty.

and then 2 more similar to that. The web site said one or more

tags were empty, which would look like this:

but all of mine had content, and in any event, there's nothing wrong with an empty

tag in html.

Here is a link to the lesson:

(it asked me for money again when I went to get this link to post)

Thank you.

Now I see what you mean about formatting code, which was not clear previously (though it said just post it as a separate line, which I did).

The code is correct, I typed 3 '

' tags as instructed (with closing '

' tags) and included text between all of the tags.

My question was, when I was finished it said I can't have any empty tags, and wouldn't let me move on, but none of my tags were empty.

If you must see one to answer my simple question, it looked like this:

'

'This is the first paragraph. This p tag is not empty.'

'

and then 2 more similar to that. The web site said one or more tags were empty, which would look like this:

'

''

'

but all of mine had content, and in any event, there's nothing wrong with an empty '

' tag in html.

Thank you.

Oh fuċk it, I'm out of here.

I understand your question what asking to do is to post your code which isn't the instaruction(I also understand that) I asked your code because if I can see your code I could be able to find what wrong with it+
by code (formate) I mean this part

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
   ....
</html>

the part your wrote

hi. I have a similar issue as the one described above. I'm doing the "It's better with a header" section.

I keep getting "Make sure you put in <h1></h1> tags between your <body></body> tags.", even if the code seems correct. Thank you in advance for your help.

Here is the code I wrote:

<!DOCTYPE html>
    <html>
    <head>
    <title>
    <body>
        <h1>a page about me</h1>
    </body>
    </title>
    </head>
    </html>

I found the solution in a different forum post: the <body> tag belongs outside the <head> tag.

Here is my solution (I don't know if this is the correct one, but I can continue):

<!DOCTYPE html>
    <html>
    <head>
    <title>
    </title>
    </head>
    <body>
        <h1>a page about me</h1>
    </body>
    </html>

Sometimes you have to stop and walk a way for a little while to see what you are missing and if your still not sure post a question, but you should include your code and/or a screen shot of your solution in the editor. after reading some of your post it sounds like you may have missed the layout of the html doc. ie the doctype declaration the head and title tags and body tags it should look llike this:

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<head><title>Chris Fecteau</title></head>
<body>
<h1>Chris Fecteau</h1>
<p>I love web development, programming and learning</p>
<p>I love programming with ruby and web development with rails, html, css and JS</p>
<p>I love learning new things so programming seems to be a gret fit with constant new languages and updates it's a subject that can keep you on your toes. constantly learning new ways of doing things and new technologies</p>
</body>
</html>

also if you want to display your code in the forums an easy way is to highlight it all and then click on the Preformatted text button on top it looks like this:
</>
Codecademy is free so I'm not sure why you were receiving pop-ups about money, but they do offer a paid pro version, which offers access to more of their resources. Still though I have never seen a popup or anything like that in the lessons. The lesson does mention inserting the 3 paragraphs below the h1 and above the body tags.
