Got as far as editing scripts.js for PSET8 and it seems that for this part of the code:

var options = {
    center: {lat: 42.3770, lng: -71.1256}, // Cambridge, Massachusetts
    disableDefaultUI: true,
    mapTypeId: google.maps.MapTypeId.ROADMAP,
    maxZoom: 14,
    panControl: true,
    styles: styles,
    zoom: 13,
    zoomControl: true

Even though I've changed the lat & lng to make the map center Cambridge, Massachusetts and saved, the map centre remains the same as before. Additionally, even though I'm using the same 'add marker' code as I had last year, no markers are on the page. This leads me to believe that the map isn't updating properly with my code. Any help on this much appreciated!


Have you tried clearing the browser cache (shift-reload or ctrl-F5)? That will cause the browser to re-download your js file. Since you mention "code from last year" is it possible apache is started in a different "path-to-root" than you expect?

  • Hey DCS, it seemed that the issue resolved as the next day I revisited and the changes updated. The issue then popped up again with some new revisions and the browser cache didn't help but I successfully submitted anyway, thanks for the help!
