    <input type="text" placeholder="cat photo URL" required>

    <button type="submit">Submit</button>



I genuinely do not see any spelling errors, the border around my cat photo is in fact GREEN, and I am extremely confused; although to be fair it is nearly 6am in the morning. Please help.

Ps. Proof I’m not hallucinating.

What colour do you think it should be? Your picture has this class applied, so everything is as it should be - green border.

Its now working. I don’t know why it wasn’t working last night but it seems to be now ;-;
