  • yea, but body is missing it’s closing >

    I added that it still doesn’t work

    Can i see an updated version of your code? It would be nice of you could post you code (rather then a image), so i could run it

    Same problem with <ol> on line 8.

    i was hoping if i pointed out one, he would figure out the other one

    I cant post the code it won’t let me

    if you edit/update your question, leave a reply so i get a notification. Your code is not visible, take the following steps to make 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:


    the backtick is located above the tab key on your keyboard

    If you can’t get to work, use the image

    I did it can you see it yet?

    You should use brown instead of #B82E00, then you should be good

    I tried that too it didnt work

    You might have hit a glitch, try a different browser

    Okay sounds good>>> I will try that

    I’m pretty sure using a different browser wouldn’t work. Codecademy is its own website, not a browser. Am I being a complete idiot?

    If using a different browser doesn’t work, you should contact one of the Codecademy officials or whatever they’re called. Sorry if it offended you…

    @davideclipse Sometimes, the browser will cache the page and so the code won’t get checked properly, or the code Codecademy is using to check the code won’t work in the browser (usually only if it’s an outdated browser, though) :slight_smile:

    Different browser does sometimes work for the reason zystvan mentions, or if there are exercises with font-size it sometimes works because the zoom isn’t 100%.

    Anyway, we never saw your code. Can we see it?
