Code won't work

Hi friends,

I’m on Applied Visual Design: Adjust the background-color Property of Text and it keeps telling me that I haven’t removed the height on the h4 element, but I have, I replaced it with padding as stated in the lesson. It won’t run the test because it tells me that the height is still there? Frustrating that it won’t show its completed.

Is anybody able to please assist? I watched the video too and did it identical to the video and still it tells me the same thing.

Please put the code using the Preformatted text on the top of the title area.


I’m not too sure what you mean? I’m fairly new to all of this.

If put the code only we can find out the mistake for that use this tool

The height property on the h4 element should be removed is what it keeps telling me

Remove the padding

and see.
If worked, please let me know.

The lesson tells me to remove the height and add the padding, I’ll try it. It seems bugged or something.

Which lesson it is share the link.

Now its telling me to add the padding and its still saying I must remove the height

Hey @AmyLeigh can you also share the link to the challenge ?


I put this code and the lesson completed .

Change the browser and see. I used Fire Fox latest Version
