I’m stuck at the last step in this exercise. I’ve entered <h2>Media</h2> but I keep getting an error asking “Did you create an <h2></h2> header that contains Media?” Is there a way to override and move forward or is there a way to make the system enter the answer so I can see what the error is and then move forward? I’ve already reported the potential bug (recognizing I may be making an error I cannot recognize at this time). Thanks for your help!


UP, got the same problem as you. If anyone can help.


Hey Julie, would you mind sharing a screenshot of your code and copy-pasting your formatted code in here too so that we can help?

Read this guide for more info!


Code is not working. I have reviewed everything and anything possible but it is not working.

Eventually over the “Next” button you will see a “Solution” button. Hit this so it corrects everything and shows the solution. It’s an error in the program because you typed it correctly, but it will let you move on to the next step now


Can we use any number

element in a web page?


The < h3> turn orange why?


I finished the question but than when I click on next button it will not move. Why?


So I get that there are 6 levels of headings, but does that mean there are 6 usable categories of headings, or does that mean you can only use up to 6 total of headings?


Never mind, the exercise answered my question. It’s a limit on the categories of headings, not on the actual number of heading tags.


Totally unrelated question: Is there a keyboard shortcut for the ‘Run’ button in the code-writing section of the exercise pages?


Hi I’m stuck at no.3 on this exercise. please help! Thank you!


There appears to be a bug in the solution. Your answer is correct…I received the same error.


I have the same problem. The only thing I can think of is get the solution and see if it will advance me to the next lesson.


Same issue for me, appears to be a bug.


i also have the same issue, i still can’t get why this problem occur even when i hit the solution button the codes are just same.


also got this problem.
