The .CSS File Error (Can't Progress)


<Below this line, add a link to the EXACT exercise that you are stuck at.>
<Below this line, in what way does your code behave incorrectly? Include ALL error messages.>
“Did you remove the style element?” Yes. Yes I did. This happened a few lessons ago with a similar issue (ordered lists). It won’t recognize that I’ve done what it needs, and I cannot progress.

Try refreshing the page

[edited because I was rude] I tried refreshing the page. I refreshed, emptied my cache, turned my PC off/on, logged out/in, tried reentering the style tag and them removing it, etc. I EVEN tried resetting my workspace but that button does nothing.

What else can I do to progress?

Hi Zain,

I’ve had the same problem and already reported the bug.
How long does it take to resolve? Really keen to get things started again.


This is in the hands of CC Staff, Unfortunately I have no clue, depends on the bug and how long it will take them to fix…

Have you tried resetting, changing browsers ect ?

Paste in your code, maybe there’s a mistake I can pick up

I’ve now also tried clearing my cache and changing browsers with no luck. ): Waiting patiently haha.
