Learn Basic CSS by Building a Cafe Menu - Step 29


This is my code but I am given an error message:

Please advise.

body {
background-image: https://cdn.freecodecamp.org/curriculum/css-cafe/beans.jpg;

You should set the background-image property to url(https://cdn.freecodecamp.org/curriculum/css-cafe/beans.jpg).

<!-- file: index.html -->
<!DOCTYPE html>
<html lang="en">
<meta charset="utf-8" />
<meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1.0" />
<title>Cafe Menu</title>
<link href="styles.css" rel="stylesheet"/>
<div class="menu">
    <h1>CAMPER CAFE</h1>
    <p>Est. 2020</p>
/* file: styles.css */
section {
background-image: https://cdn.freecodecamp.org/curriculum/css-cafe/beans.jpg;

h1, h2, p {
text-align: center;

.menu {
width: 80%;
background-color: burlywood;
margin-left: auto;
margin-right: auto;

Link to the challenge:

This isn’t formatted correctly.
Example of how it’s used:
background-image: url(Enter-your-url-here!);

I’ve edited your code for readability. When you enter a code block into a forum post, please precede it with a separate line of three backticks and follow it with a separate line of three backticks to make it easier to read.

You can also use the “preformatted text” tool in the editor (</>) to add backticks around text.

See this post to find the backtick on your keyboard.
Note: Backticks (`) are not single quotes (').

Thanks for the quick response!
I have written it according to the format you mention.
What am I mising here
background-image: url(Enter-your-url-here!);
(adding backticks as requested)
body { background-image: https://cdn.freecodecamp.org/curriculum/css-cafe/beans.jpg;

Thanks I will add backticks to the code as requested.

Where have I gone wrong with the code

background-image: https://cdn.freecodecamp.org/curriculum/css-cafe/beans.jpg;

You are missing "URL" infront of the url, and the parenthesis at the start and end of the actual link.

As @Rossvold said, The syntax you’re using for the value for your background-image is not correct.

here’s an article which explains how to use it.

It works now. Thank you very much!
