Not letting me progress when colors are used in code

Tell us what’s happening:

  **Your code so far**

.red-text {
  color: #FF0000;
.green-text {
  color: #00FF00;
.dodger-blue-text {
  color: #1E90FF;
.orange-text {
  color: #FFA500;

<h1 class="red-text">I am red!</h1>

<h1 class="green-text">I am green!</h1>

<h1 class="dodger-blue-text">I am dodger blue!</h1>

<h1 class="orange-text">I am orange!</h1>

Challenge: Use Hex Code to Mix Colors

Link to the challenge:

This is the error I am getting. It happens any time there is a color change prompt. I have gotten around this issue by just moving forward manually in the curriculum, but I am unsure why this keeps happening.

Did you try using inline styling instead of <style></style> ?? ie :

<h1 class="red-text" style="color: ....">I am red!</h1>

From a quick overview i don’t see what’s wrong, unless it’s expecting you to use the styling inline as i said

Are you using a dark-mode extension? Those extensions work by changing your CSS, which interferes with the test suite.
With the CSS challenges it is important to disable all browser extensions that modify your CSS, such as dark mode extensions. freeCodeCamp does have a native dark mode you can enable in your settings.

@ZacharyCel, just an FYI that that’s not what the lesson is asking for.

Didin’t intend to misslead or confuse sorry :sweat_smile:

I am, and that was my first assumption and it does the same thing when I remove the extension and reboot chrome.

Ope! You were correct I had turned off but not removed the darkmode extension. I thought I had removed previously. Thank you!
