Exercise 9. Error Message


Receiving the same error message in Exercise 9 that I received in Exercise 8. Here is the error message:

Oops, try again. Set the color of the a elements inside {div class="learn-more">..{/div> to #00b0ff

Here is my HTML header code:

{link href="shift.css" rel="stylesheet">
{link href="main.css" rel="stylesheet">

and here is my CSS code:

.jumbotron {
height: 500px;
background-image: url('https://goo.gl/04j7Nn');

.learn-more {
background-color: #f7f7f7;

.nav a {
color: #5a5a5a;
font-size: 11px;
font-weight: bold;
padding-top: 14px;
padding-bottom: 14px;
padding-left: 10px;
padding-right: 10px;
text-transform: uppercase;

.jumbotron h1 {
color: #fff;
font-size: 48px;
font-weight: bold;
font-family: 'Shift', sans-serif;

.jumbotron p {
color: #fff;
font-size: 20px;

.learn-more h3 {
font-size: 18px;
font-weight: bold;
font-family: 'Shift', sans-serif;

.learn-more a {
color: #00b0ff;

note: I've replaced the first "<" symbol on HTML tags with a "{" so it will show up in my posts instead of registering as markup. It's syntactically correct in my code.

It really looks to me like I've styled the {h3> elements and {a> in {div>'s of class "learn-more" as indicated in Exercises 8. and 9. Can anybody tell me why I'm getting an error message?


I made a mistake in the code I posted:

The linked .css file for the "Shift" font is currently




as shown. The issue persists.


You are missing one of your curly braces, one of these: }.

For next time, this will help:
