Challenge: Step 14

You’re putting the closing tags in the wrong places. This lesson is not requiring you to have the tags nested, so all of the elements should be adjacent to each other.

It is great that you solved the challenge, but instead of posting your full working solution, it is best to stay focused on answering the original poster’s question(s) and help guide them with hints and suggestions to solve their own issues with the challenge.

We are trying to cut back on the number of spoiler solutions found on the forum and instead focus on helping other campers with their questions and definitely not posting full working solutions.

I understand the struggle. I made it through most of the legacy course for this and it explained a lot more than this new one does. But I eventually figured this step out. It’s very picky about how you do it. Make sure you’re indenting your extra divs you are putting in.

If you are no longer stuck you can ignore this post.

You have the three div elements. However, your issue likely lies in the fact that you close them all at the end. Doing this makes the container div encompass all three markers as it should. However, your first marker encompasses your other two markers acting as a sort of container and your second marker also encompasses the last marker.

Try closing the div elements on the same line you opened them.

Another thing to keep in mind is that your spacing is all over the place. Although this may work it is not good practice to have sporadic spacing. Try to keep things clean and consistent. Since these div elements are confined within the container they should be properly indented children of the <div class="container">.

Close the tags as you open them for example.
