Having Trouble with Check Radio Buttons and Checkboxes by Default"

I know that what I’m doing is correct. I see the boxes checked by default in the actual website that I’m building in the exercise. Each time I run the test it says to me:

You should not change the inner text of the Indoor label AND You should not change the inner text of the Loving label.

It shows at the right what is happening on the Cat App website and the correct boxes are selected and checked. I’ve watched the video 10 times and I have started from the beginning 10 times and now I’m super frustrated. Please help…

I think that there is a glitch in this particular challenge and I am stuck here and can’t proceed which is super frustrating because I’d like to continue on with my work here but am stuck waiting for an answer to this.

Challenge: Check Radio Buttons and Checkboxes by Default

Link to the challenge:

You have changed things that you shouldn’t have. For example, you have removed the ids from the inputs? Is there a reason you did this? I would click the “Reset All Code” button to get a fresh start and just do only what the instructions ask.

That seems pretty drastic to me. It ‘will reset everything and cannot be UNDONE’. But…I might have to if there is no other way to proceed.

No, it just puts the starting code for this particular challenge back to what initially was. It doesn’t reset anything else.

I agree, the wording on that button does sound a little ominous.

You are a genius. I reset and now it’s working perfectly. yes!!!
