Ongoing problem with my code test

I am having on going problems, after I write the code challenge, I get the green light, it says WELL DONE! next task - I click it and it takes me back to the PREVIEW OR CHECK WORK page.

I preview and everything checks out so I click NEXT TASK, but it takes me back to the PREVIEW OR CHECK WORK page again and it goes around and around.

I have sent an email to the help desk at team tree house and they suggested I use Chrome or Firefox and use incognito mode, but I still cannot progress to the next task.

Thank you Dillon

The only thing I can see is where you have

<!DOCTYPYE html>

You don't need that extra <html> tag

Is there any error message that is coming up like your forgetting a task? The code looks good to me. Have you tried to move on to next task in the lesson menu or see if it's complete there?

Hi Robert,

No error message, it says Well Done - Next task. When I preview the code it looks right. When I bypass this and finish the rest of the quiz, it shows me I have not done the code test.

Have you tried a different browser? Made sure the one your in is up to date. I have had no problems running treehouse in Chrome.

I tried Chrome and installed Firefox latest.

Is java up to date? Is their any ad block or other script blockers running?

Hi Robert,

Yes, now that you mentioned it, my Java is not up to date because of the conflict between Oracle and the latest Java version.

Could this be why?

That would be my best guess if it not working on any of your browsers. I would uninstall java and redownload java for scratch and reinstall.


newest version should be Java 8 update 31

What do you mean "conflict between Oracle and the latest Java version"?

Oracle makes the and distributes the program Java.

Unfortunately, I have requested the latest version of Java but Oracle stops working properly. I have to then downgrade back to version 6 for Oracle to start working again. I have been told my Oracle that it is the version of Oracle our Company uses and there is no fix - as of yet!

Is there anything else I can try because I have`nt done any code for over a week now and I am losing interest.

Dillon Greening It looks like you might be having some issues with JavaScript, but it's not clear what exactly is causing it. I went ahead and marked the Code Challenge as complete for you since your answer above is clearly correct. I'll be looking into this more.
