when you say input the id in the form, how does that look? I have it the style element but can’t seem to get it right in the form to trigger the green background
Thanks

Hope this will help

reset it a ft a few times but didn’t notice that I left out the # in the style element TY

it should work at this way. typing in the style section as form {background-color:green;}
hope will help
