Lesson 46: Use an ID Attribute to Style an Element

What’s wrong with my code? I can’t believe I’m stuck on lesson 46.

<link href="https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Lobster" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css">
  .red-text {
    color: red;

  h2 {
    font-family: Lobster, Monospace;

  p {
    font-size: 16px;
    font-family: Monospace;

  .thick-green-border {
    border-color: green;
    border-width: 10px;
    border-style: solid;
    border-radius: 50%;

  .smaller-image {
    width: 100px;

  .silver-background {
    background-color: silver;
  #cat-photo-element {
  background-color: green;

<h2 class="red-text">CatPhotoApp</h2>

<p>Click here for <a href="#">cat photos</a>.</p>

<a href="#"><img class="smaller-image thick-green-border" alt="A cute orange cat lying on its back. " src='//discourse-cloud-file-uploads.s3.dualstack.us-west-2.amazonaws.com/freecodecamp/original/3X/6/1/61a3499c5abb165be990aa0c1abd23342e60c663.jpg'></a>

<div class="silver-background">
  <p>Things cats love:</p>
    <li>cat nip</li>
    <li>laser pointers</li>
  <p>Top 3 things cats hate:</p>
    <li>flea treatment</li>
    <li>other cats</li>

<form action="/submit-cat-photo" id="cat-photo-form" id="background-green">
  <label><input type="radio" name="indoor-outdoor" checked> Indoor</label>
  <label><input type="radio" name="indoor-outdoor"> Outdoor</label>
  <label><input type="checkbox" name="personality" checked> Loving</label>
  <label><input type="checkbox" name="personality"> Lazy</label>
  <label><input type="checkbox" name="personality"> Energetic</label>
  <input type="text" placeholder="cat photo URL" required>
  <button type="submit">Submit</button>

Can you post what your code is? That is just the style code.

My code for the style is -


I can see you have -

Looking back at the problem I think if you change it to what I have it will work for you, you just named it wrong.


That is what I have in my code. I’m not sure why paces were added after I copied it to my post in the forum.

OOOOOOHHHHHHHH! I had element instead of form. LOL
Thank you so much!

Has that fixed it for you? You should take out the 2nd id=“background-green”

if you use an id example:

Style Me! there, so in css in order to put style that elemet use the hastag sign # to style it example iwant to color that heading so:
there you go!

Yes that fixed my issue. Thanks!
