Issue With Detection for --penguin-belly

Tell us what’s happening:
The change to the custom variable in the penguin class isn’t being detected, but the change to white is happening in the console. I checked around in the forum to make sure the code I have is correct, and it is, as far as I can tell. Not sure what’s going on.
Your code so far

Agreed. I have the same issue.

i tried your code and it worked on my browser, so it must be a browser related issue

  • Make sure that you are using a supported browser (Edge, Firefox, Safari, Chrome)
  • Make sure that your browser is updated.
  • Turn off any extensions that affect the appearance of websites (like a “dark mode” extension)
  • Turn off any extensions that prevent scripts from running (like ad-blockers)
  • Reset the challenge and try again.

Thanks! It’s definitely browser related. I downloaded Chrome and was able to run the code with no problem.

Thanks for the reply!

It must be an issue somewhere with Safari. I’m using the most updated version of the browser and not using any extensions or ad-blockers.

I downloaded Chrome and the code ran just fine.

Same here. Great that I have read you because I was going nuts…Safari did not work for me either, switched to Chrome and works fine.

Glad this post was able to help you! I spent about an hour last night trying to figure out if there was something wrong with my syntax or something, so I completely understand.
