I have the same trouble!

Error message:
Did you extend the absolute placeholder inside of main.scss?

same here…
adding “;” at the end of the line in the body of the .absolute class doesn’t help either

Same issue here, must be a problem with the course.

Codecademy recently announced this on Twitter: “We’re experiencing some technical issues, but our team is on it. Thanks for your patience while we work things out!”

Well, it seems that we have to wait for a while until everything’s fixed.
