Question about lesson


#1

do answers have to be correct to move on?....if so why do i feel its just passing without proper answer...am i really doing things correctly ? thank you for any answers i get i really like coding so far just wanna make sure i following the lessons right


#2

hope this clears up why i am a little confused ...if nothing is wrong ill keep going


#3

In your CSS, you are missing two curly braces ... these: }. I don't think that you have your selectors right either. there should be a .jumbotron p - yes?

-- also, you can't mix your quotes, use either two " " or two ' '. On your Shift, you have one of each.

In your HTML, you must have accidentally added some CSS. I can see it showing in your second picture in the web preview picture -- that shouldn't be there.


#4

alright i will take another look now ...if i did it wrong why did it let me pass?


#5

That's a good question. The code checker isn't as strict as it could be. It must be looking for something else in that exercise.

It is looking for an h3 inside of a learn-more that has:
- a font-family of 'Shift'
- a font-size of 18
- a font-weight of bold


#6

please also see that i have moved to another section please see attached screen shots it says i passed but did i really and if i am missing something why i don't i get a warning thank you for helping me by the way these past two days


#7

I can tell that you still have some CSS in your HTML file because I can see it in the web preview:

In your CSS file, you are still missing at least two of these: }.


#8

You are welcome, I am happy to help you learn how all of this works.


#9

ok i am going to move that into the css section and delete it from html section please see attached screen shot now does it matter where in the css file i place the code should it be at top or bottom


#10

i thought i was making progress i just knew i was doing something wrong


#11

Where doesn't matter to the computer, it does matter to humans that are reading your code. I prefer to find the CSS rules in roughly the same order as the elements appear on the HTML page.


#12

That shows that you have good instincts.


#13

i see that there is clean code and messy code i know it helps if its cleaner that way you can see where your mistakes are VS pulling your hair reading a mess.....so i did put it in correctly? question is where are we moving it too so it can look like its in order?


#14

EVERY CSS rule must have both an opening { and a closing }. You are missing several closing curly braces.


#15

I like to write my CSS like this:

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

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

It's easy to spot a missing curly brace or semicolon.


#16

ok fixed and i am starting to see a change in my web preview please see attached let me know if it looks right


#17
