Try copying the element, reset and paste it back in.

It is a known issue. But it is super random if or when it happens.

If you encounter this problem in the future, try reloading the page with your solution already written in the editor the submit.
It works for me every time i find this bug, hope it helps you and future campers :sweat_smile:!


You got this, bruh! :handshake:

It worked for me, thank you!

Thank you! Worked like a charm for me as well!

I had to reset, CTRL+F5 (hard refresh), paste the correct code, and NOT indent!
