I have been tinkering every once in a while with my Arduino, learning slowly and bit by bit, but I am finding one thing that is really making it extremely difficult (the most difficult in fact) is getting resistors to stick to the breadboard. The connections are flimsy at best and will not go all the way in. I tried to experiment with making a photoresistor activated relay switch (using Robojax's video on YouTube as a guide) but I did not have the module he had, so I tried to use my breadboard to mount the sensors.
Only they never connected at all and just fell the moment anything was moved. I am not even sure if the resistors stuck.
Is this normal with solderless breadboards? Because this is actually my biggest issue with arduino projects at the moment. The dupont cables fit in snugly and perfectly, but the resistors just don't want to. What can I do to alleviate this issue?
