I can't pass the course Build Your Own Webpage, Tell Us About Yourself! For having empty < p > tags, I have tried, but I can't get pass this lesson, may someone please help me!


#2

please post your code, i can't help you without code. if you edit/update your question, leave a reply so i get a notification. take the following steps to ensure your code visible:

select your code and press ctrl + k (or cmd + k if you use a mac)

if this instructions are unclear, you can also insert 3 backticks before and after your code, like so:

```
<p>visible</p>
```

the backtick is located above the tab key on your keyboard

the < p >s are invisible though.


#5

did you use my instructions? If they are unclear, copy your code to the forum, select all (ctrl + a) and then press ctrl + k to indent, this will make it visible


#6

I can pass this either.

I meant I can't. thanks!


#8

@stetim94 I formatted both of their posts for you.


#9

Are you getting an error when you attempt to pass the lesson? If so, what is it?


#10

It is "Oops, try again,No empty p tags! Make sure to write a bit more about yourself in all three paragraphs."


#11

@gummytina I'll let @jacobsandersen and @stetim94 help you, but I just want to point out that it might be a good idea to edit your post with the code, since it's showing your email address right now :wink:


#12

Removed. Thanks Zeke :smiley:
(p.s. my bad, edited your post on accident. :wink:)


#13

I see your three paragraphs, however what might be tripping up the grader is that you're also using <h3> in your paragraphs which is a heading -- totally different from a <p>. Try removing that.

If you want to edit the size of font in the future, use CSS! Something like this style="font-size:20px;".


#14

Thanks Zeke and Jacob.


#15

I removed all the <h1> and <h3>, and now i get passed. thank you for your helps.


#16

You can't put an < h3 > inside of your < p >


#17

Could anyone tell me why this is not working

simply too much code, reset and only add 3 paragraphs. It could be a lot of things which trick SCT to give a error
