Import a Google font fails "Use an h2 CSS selector to change the font."

Tell us what’s happening:
Passes everything but " Use an h2 CSS selector to change the font." I have read many other posts about this and have tried applying the advice. I believe I have done the code correct according to the given solution, am i missing something obvious? I have tried multiple variations of “font-family:” such as using nothing in place of “GENERIC_NAME” as well as other font styles. Hello and thank you :slight_smile:

Your code so far

<link href="" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css">
  .red-text {
    color: red;
  h2 {
    font-family: Lobster, "Open Sans" ;}
  p {
    font-size: 16px;
    font-family: monospace;

<h2 class="red-text">CatPhotoApp</h2>
  <p class="red-text">Click here to view more <a href="#">cat photos</a>.</p>
  <a href="#"><img src="" alt="A cute orange cat lying on its back."></a>
    <p>Things cats love:</p>
      <li>cat nip</li>
      <li>laser pointers</li>
    <p>Top 3 things cats hate:</p>
      <li>flea treatment</li>
      <li>other cats</li>
  <form action="/submit-cat-photo">
    <label><input type="radio" name="indoor-outdoor" checked> Indoor</label>
    <label><input type="radio" name="indoor-outdoor"> Outdoor</label><br>
    <label><input type="checkbox" name="personality" checked> Loving</label>
    <label><input type="checkbox" name="personality"> Lazy</label>
    <label><input type="checkbox" name="personality"> Energetic</label><br>
    <input type="text" placeholder="cat photo URL" required>
    <button type="submit">Submit</button>

Link to the challenge:

Seems the validator has some problem with that Open Sans-part . I think this is only an example, NOT part of the challenge.

I have tried it without “Open Sans”. I have tried only using Lobster as the given solution has, also other font styles such as “monospace” etc.

I just run the test with your new code and it passed:

  h2 {
font-family: Lobster;

I figured it out, I was placing a comma after Lobster when I was not using a “GENERIC_NAME” !! lol thank you for help! :slight_smile:
