Hello @Daniel1998 !

Just add background: before the linear-gradient and see what happens for you. It is a simple error that we all make sometimes.

I hope this helps you.

Keep up the good progress and happy coding!

Hi @Daniel1998 ,

So you’ll want to make sure that you have a background property first and then try to fill in the function provided:

background: linear-gradient(gradientDirection, color1, color2, ...);

It is great that you solved the challenge, but instead of posting your full working solution, it is best to stay focused on answering the original poster’s question(s) and help guide them with hints and suggestions to solve their own issues with the challenge.

We are trying to cut back on the number of spoiler solutions found on the forum and instead focus on helping other campers with their questions and definitely not posting full working solutions.
