Lost what I have done...

Luis Felipe Jul 11, 2012 04:42PM EDT

Everything was alright, but today I saw that I have 0% of the javascript course even though I was farther ahead. Is there a way to recover this?

Many of my students are finding that their progress in Javascript is now gone. And it stopped calculating points.

Yup, same issue.. all completed work (code) in the 'JavaScript Fundamentals' track is gone. Most of the lessons are still showing as checked off (although some, e.g. the very first lesson 'Getting Started with Programming' is completely blank, as if never completed). So, it's now impossible to refer to past work :( Of course, it's also a major motivational blow ;)

I have the same problem with lesson 'Getting Started with Programming' too. Maybe it would be helpful for developers if I say that I've started this lesson on Russian language.

the same problem, "Getting Started with Programming" looks as if I haven't touched it before, although I've done it already. Funny, but I get points for each task, when I finish it, again.

It's happened with me as well. Many a times I have to redo a particular section because the ticks simply disappear from the exercises. I even have problems saving the exercises as they don't get saved even after clicking save. I need to go back and see my codes on occasions (as a revision), but my codes are not there.

My progress in track JavaScript Fundamentals is not recording. This error appears only with this track. Python and Web Fundamentals tracks works fine, but JavaScript track don't remember any things i've done before. And when i press "Resume Course" i begin this track from the beggining every time. I tried to do this 3 or 4 times and every time problem was the same and even points for exercises didn't increase. Earlier i finished non-track course of JavaScript in Russian, but there is no points or badges, so i decided to make it right, in English :) Please help me, i hope for your response.

I have the same problem. I started the code year yesterday, with "getting started with programming", it counted the points without problems. Today neither streak nor points got counted :(

Apart from that I am so happy to have found codecadamy, you do great work, keep it up!

All the best, Sophie.

Ok, I just found the reason why I lost my progress. The system has change my default language into Spanish, and it seems to be that English/Spanish course are two different courses instead of being the same. Please correct this. Thank you.

Guillermo is right. When your language is changed, all your progress is gone. What you have to do is set the previous language you were using.

Codecademy, please fix this.

Btw, I always used english has default language for codecademy, but chrome or the site, insisted in showing stuff in my native language, portuguese.
I checked the end of the page and I had english selected, so I then checked the url and I found that the url had /pt in it, so in my case I had to change /pt to /en.

So for those of you that already hade english selected but the page isn't in english, check the url.

Weird problem with me: It shows advance in my Python track, but upon clicking on "Go to Course" it goes to the beginning, although it remembers my progress. There are ways to bypass this and go to the last section you completed. You can use the drop-down in the console view, or you can see your progress from outside the course.
