Challenge: Use an id Attribute to Style an Element

Link to the challenge:

Hi @Charli!

Try moving the:

#cat-photo-element {
background-color: green;

into the <style></style> tags near the top of the code. That should work :slight_smile:

CSS can be added to your HTML in 3 ways:

  • Within <style></style> element in your HTML
  • Inline by adding the style="" attribute to your HTML element
  • By importing the CSS styles into your HTML file the the <link /> element

You can learn more by reading some of the MDN HTML documentation

Happy learning!

you have not write the correct syntax for inline style thats why your code not pass
remove this from the form and paste it into the style tag.

 #cat-photo-element {
  background-color: green;

and then assign it to the form like this

<form action="" id="cat-photo-form">

Thanks very much. I get you. However, what now confuses me is that, the instruction says: You should not give your form any class or style attributes.

For the sake of practice, I think they want you to customize the style of the form using an id attribute instead of a class or style attribute.

Here is an example of a form element with the id attribute:

<form id="idName">...</form>

You can modify the style of your form element by using a class to reference it instead:

<form class="className">...</form>

When you use an id or class on an HTML element, you reference the attribute in your CSS like this:

#idName { background-color: grey; }
.className { background-color: grey; }

Alternatively, you could also add your CSS rules on your HTML element with the style attribute:

<form style="background-color: grey;">...</form>

Hope that makes sense :slight_smile:
