Learn CSS Colors by Building a Set of Colored Markers - Step 11

Tell us what’s happening:

I’m having trouble trying to figure this out. I put in a class selector or tried and put in a .freecodecamp selector but the error is telling me that I still need to put in a marker class.

If someone can help me explain where I am going wrong, that would be great. I am not looking for an answer, just an explanation of where I went wrong.

Thanks,
Jonathan

Hi @jpccdirect

You used code from the example, for the first selector.
The second selector does not have the correct syntax.

Happy coding

Reset your challenge and add .marker selector , and in the marker selector add background color property with the value red.

Great work! In css when ‘h1’ was used you were selecting an ‘element’. When ’ . ’ is used you are selecting a ‘class’. When ’ # ’ is used you are selecting an ‘id’.
h1 = selecting all h1 elements
.freecodecamp = selecting classes with name ‘freecodecamp’
Good luck!
