The challenge tells you how to change the h2 element’s color to blue:

<h2 style="color: blue;">CatPhotoApp</h2>

Adding a style attribute like this style="color: blue;" is how you change the color of an element.

Now, what do you think you need to do to make it red?


#3

this is not what i want, i need

on it’s on to turn red, not adding red to it’s element


#4

I’m not sure I understand. Are you looking for the solution to the challenge you provided the link to?

https://learn.freecodecamp.org/responsive-web-design/basic-css/change-the-color-of-text

Because that is what I’ve provided.


#5

yes, but really i did what you asked. i still can’t bypass


#6

You are doing more than the test asks. You created a new H2 and made it red. Clear your code and start over. Don’t add new things, only change existing code.


#7

Hey there! I’ve literally just done this one (yay!)

It’s a bit confusing, but basically see it as telling the rest of the page to recognise what “.red-text” is.

You do this by telling the very top bit (in the <style> ... </style> section) what it has to do when you type “red-text” further down. See the section as a dictionary in this case.


#8

your code should be this

/* this h2 element is what you care about*/

<h2 style="color:red;">CatPhotoApp</h2>
