Code errors point to exactly where the code failed and why, but sometimes the code instructions are also difficult to understand.
Every lesson on Codecademy has its own forum entry where you can ask and answer questions about that lesson. In the top navigation bar in all lessons and projects, you will see a Get Unstuck icon. Once selected, click the Codecademy Forums dropdown to view the most common questions or direct you to the forums.
You can also find helpful hints on most exercises. Look for the "Stuck? Get a Hint!" sign at end of the instructions, on the leftmost instruction panel.
If you are still stuck on a lesson, you can always have the solution provided to you. We recommend once the solution is provided, you review the correct code to see exactly where your issue was occurring. You may always reset the exercise again as well! To get the solution, select Get Unstuck and then Get Code Solution. Projects, on the other hand, are freeform and do not come with a code solution.
