Dasmotos Arts and Craft: Feedback!

Hi, I’m Heather. I’m pretty new to Codecademy and I’m going for the Full-Stack Developer program. So far I’m enjoying it and I feel pretty good about my learning. However, this project has me somewhat stumped. I thought I knew how to link my css sheet to my html file, but it isn’t working. I’m growing frustrated. Can someone please take a look at my html file and see if they can help me figure out what I’m missing/doing incorrectly? At one point I had them linked but I just couldn’t get the pattern image behind the h1. But I’ve deleted everything and started over about 3 times so far so I’m not sure what the differences were between the one that worked and this one. I feel stuck! Thanks in advance for your help!

Hey Heather. Honestly I did not see the problem until I realized that you have it set up as

href="Resources\CSS\index.css">

when it should be

href="Resources/CSS/index.css">

That should fix it. Just mixing up the forward/backward slash. I’ve been there before haha.

Thanks for your quick response. I really appreciate it!

I actually was able to get them linked by using the absolute path instead of relative paths, for some reason every time I c/p a path from my VSC it places the slashes that way. Is there something I can/need to do to change that? I noticed it is backwards but I’m not sure what to do about it.

My CSS file is now linked but I’m still having trouble getting that pattern image behind my h1. This is what I’ve got in my CSS as of now. What am I missing/ doing wrong??

These images are rendering properly even with the backwards \

It’s not a very well-crafted project. The course is very guided up until this point, then suddenly throws you into the deep end with little assistance. I know it’s meant to be fun and experimentation, but it’s not.
