Hi @ShayD ,

This is not how you add a class to your html element.

You already have used a class before in your code :wink:

I think I am doing it - please look -

<p> French Vanilla <div class="flavor"> </p>
            <p>3.00 </p>

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.

Your code goes here

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

Hey there. How did you make these triple backticks in your post to look like text? I can’t figure it out :upside_down_face:

Even if I quote your text with them, they disappear. It’s kinda confusing

You add a backslash \ before the character you wanna escape :wink:

it only letting me paste the end of the code

<p> French Vanilla <div class="flavor"> </p>
            <p>3.00 </p>

Why is that? I am not sure why.
I hope this will help you :

Now, you always add the class to the opening tag of the element you want.

Here, you have to add the class to the p element. So, the class should be within the opening <p> tag .

The div with the class menu was just an example for you.

You are told to add the /* class = “flavour”*/ to the P element.

French Vanilla

should I switch to python?

switch to python from what? this thread is about a specific challenge on the responsive web design curriculum. Maybe it’s better if you open your own topic for your own question?
