Teachers can create custom modules, lessons, and assignments in CodeHS. For more information about creating these, check out our article here. If you are running into issues, this article can help you troubleshoot common issues.
Whenever content is uploaded to CodeHS from your Google drive, it is important to make sure the content is available for "anyone with the link." This will ensure you and your students can properly view the material.
If your sharing permissions are correct, but you or your students are getting a 403 Forbidden error in CodeHS, then we will need to edit the link shared by Google drive.
In order to avoid this 403 Forbidden error in CodeHS, you can modify the share link given by Google and change the last portion from view to preview in the content on CodeHS.
From your Assignments page:
Click edit on the assignment in question
Locate the URL of the Google document
Change the end of the URL from view to preview
Original link: https://drive.google.com/file/filepath/view?usp=share_link
Modified link: https://drive.google.com/file/filepath/preview
Click save in CodeHS
