Welcome to the Treehouse Community
Looking to learn something new?
If I want to switch tracks will i lose all my current progress? Or will I be able to switch back without an issue?
For instance, I'm currently on the Front-End Web Development Track... Am I able to go to the WordPress track, finish that, and continue where I left off on the Front-End Track??

You can switch tracks and do not need to worry about your progress disappearing. You will be right where you left off when you come back to the track you were on.

Yes, regardless of your plan. You can switch tracks at any time and it will save your progress from any previous course you have taken.
Some tracks even have overlapping content (Web Design and Front End Web Dev, for example) so if you complete a course in one track it will show that as completed already in the other track. DRY
Joshua Harman I had this same question that I sent directly to Treehouse staff, and had a bit of thread email with them answering my questions.
All in all, the whole thing of picking a "Track" is pretty arbitrary, and most likely just serves as a motivating tool. Absolutely all of your progress is saved to your account, so you can go off and do other tracks, or just take other random courses for however you long before you come back, and you will find exactly where you left off.
In one of the answer emails, I specifically asked if the "switch" between tracks really does anything and the Treehouse staffmember basically said that it doesn't do anything other than recommending what to do next in emails, as well as when you first log on to the website each time you come back.
Thanks Colin!! Is that even if I'm on the CodeOregon trial?
