I keep getting the “request failed” message in my browser console. I don’t know why i’m getting that message. I believe it has something to do with the foursquare app i created. I don’t know if i’m including the correct url. Currently, i’m using the url that appear in the address bar for the wanderlust project which is “https://www.codecademy.com/courses/introduction-to-javascript/projects/wanderlust

What url should i be using. Also, below is my code just in case the url isn’t the problem.

// Foursquare API Info
const url = ‘https://api.foursquare.com/v2/venues/explore?near=’;

// APIXU Info
const apiKey = ‘37c2c081a0fa444ca90ecabba85ccac2’;
const forecastUrl = ‘https://api.apixu.com/v1/forecast.json?key=’;

// Page Elements
const input = (’#city’);
const submit = (’#button’);
const destination = (’#destination’);
const container = (’.container’);
const venueDivs = [("#venue1"), ("#venue2"), ("#venue3"), $("#venue4")];
const weatherDivs = [("#weather1"), ("#weather2"), ("#weather3"), $("#weather4")];
const weekDays = [‘Sunday’, ‘Monday’, ‘Tuesday’, ‘Wednesday’, ‘Thursday’, ‘Friday’, ‘Saturday’];

// Add AJAX functions here:
const getVenues = async () => {
const city = input.val(); const urlToFetch = `{url}{city}&limit=10&client_id={clientId}&client_secret=${clientSecret}&v=20181127}`;

try {
const response = await fetch(urlToFetch);
if (response.ok) {
else {
throw new Error(‘Request failed!’);
catch(error) {

const getForecast = () => {


// Render functions
const renderVenues = (venues) => {
$venueDivs.forEach(($venue, index) => {
// Add your code here:

let venueContent = '';


const renderForecast = (days) => {
$weatherDivs.forEach(($day, index) => {
// Add your code here:

let weatherContent = '';


const executeSearch = () => {
$venueDivs.forEach(venue => venue.empty());
$weatherDivs.forEach(day => day.empty());
$container.css(“visibility”, “visible”);
return false;


When you log in to FS, click your profile and -> My Apps. Then Edit in the upper right corner. There, my app url is: foursq

That works for me. I had your problem, but I think I found the solution in Codecademy’s notes somewhere when I reread it thoroughly. Does it help?

That worked! Thank you soooooooooooooo much!!!
