#6

#7

Here it is again, let me know if you have trouble with it.


#8

im confused i dont get it


#9

When you want to post HTML code in a web browser, you must format it so that it appears as text -- you have to stop the browser from converting it. To do that you put three backticks, on the line before and the line after your code.


#10

what are blacksticks


#11

In this image you can see three backticks before the code and three after:

On my keyboard, they are to the left of the 1 key.


#12

background-size: cover;

What you will need to do there is move this line

 background-size: cover;

So that it comes AFTER this one:

 background: url("https://tse1.mm.bing.net/th?&id=OIP.Mfcb0c1b3c4b8d7662d85e269ee98d8a4H0&w=300&h=300&c=0&pid=1.9&rs=0&p=0");");

should i switch course since it does not workk


#20

No, don't do that, I see the problem.

There are some extra characters at the end of your url line. It should be like this:

 background: url("https://tse1.mm.bing.net/th?&id=OIP.Mfcb0c1b3c4b8d7662d85e269ee98d8a4H0&w=300&h=300&c=0&pid=1.9&rs=0&p=0");
