Everything works except that when I complete or uncomplete a task it doesn't persist.

When I add or edit the name of a todo it works perfectly, but checking the box doesn't persist even after I save and reload the page. I can see that the ng-click function on those checkboxes changes the todo state to todo.edited = true, so the put request should apply to it, but it's not. Anybody have any insights?

Please show the code and provide a link to the course page you are working with.

I'm sorry. For some reason when I post a question in the forum I'm working in, it instead posts it in general and just asks for a category. Not doing it on purpose. I mean to post in the course. I actually figured it out. But thanks for pointing out what seemed like a mistake. I'll contact support.

If I understand your issue correctly, I believe I encountered the same problem.

In your /templates/todo.html file, if the top line contains:

ng-init="todo.completed = false"

Edit/comment that section of code out of the file.

That's what clobbers the actual 'completed' values from the get response.

I hope that helps.
