Learn CSS Variables by Building a City Skyline - Step 108

Tell us what’s happening:

I typed the code as I was asked to. I cannot see where the mistake is. Would someone look it over and tell me where I have gone wrong?

Thank you.

Your code so far

Challenge: Learn CSS Variables by Building a City Skyline - Step 108

Link to the challenge:

you are missing the closing bracket after the 30% (and before the comma)

Hi
thank you for responding. I would be glad to follow your suggestion; however, the instruction said this:

Step 108

Add another repeating gradient to this building; make it the same as the one you just added, except don’t add the 90deg direction and use your window color instead of the two transparent colors.

This is the result that I got:

HINT:
You should give .fb6 a second repeating-linear-gradient in the background property.

And I did copy and paste the gradient and changed transparent to window-color 2.

Blockquote

have you tried my suggestion yet?
How did that go?

Thank you very much for your help. I got it. I went over the code again step by step and looked to see if I overlooked something, and I had missed one of the “)”, and that fixed the issue.

Thank you so much.

Ciao :fist_right:.

Hi,
how do I add an empty @media condition?

The direction says this:

Step 114

A media query can be used to change styles based on certain conditions, and they look like this:

@media (condition) {

}  

Add an empty media query at the bottom of your stylesheet with a condition of max-width: 1000px. Styles added in here will take effect when the document size is 1000px wide or less.

I have done this:

@media(){max-width: 1000px;} /*I didn't put anyting in the parenthesis since it supposed to be empty */

This is the result that I got:

Hint

You should add an empty media query with max-width: 1000px.

Thank you.

please post your question in a separate topic to keep this topic about step # 108.
