Describe your issue in detail here.

I’m in

// running tests
Your li elements should have closing tags.
// tests completed

I even tried copying the solution and got the same error!

Your code so far

Challenge: Create a Bulleted Unordered List

Link to the challenge:

ok so right after “Your code so far” you need to edit your post and add 3 backticks (`) to get it so it shows as a code block. They’re located on the same button as the tilde (~). This way we’ll be able to see your code!

Thanks.

Do I put them straight after the words “Your code so far” or after my code?

I’ve edited your post for readability. When you enter a code block into a forum post, please precede it with a separate line of three backticks and follow it with a separate line of three backticks to make it easier to read.

You can also use the “preformatted text” tool in the editor (</>) to add backticks around text.

See this post to find the backtick on your keyboard.
Note: Backticks (`) are not single quotes (’).

i copied and pasted your code and it worked for me? it could be a browser issue or sometimes extensions can mess with it. You could try resetting the problem and putting the code in again.

Thank you very much for fixing my post and for explaining the use of the backticks

I had put some comments before the code I showed you. When I removed them then the code worked!

Thank you for responding to my query.
