I am also having trouble here. The code did not come with an id of thumbnail…each time I try to create this id with #thumbnail in the .fullCard part of the style section, it doesn’t work. If I simply create a box shadow it works, but every time I try to create this #thumbnail and then put the box shadow it fails. Where is this supposedly already created id???

Example of the code I am attempting:

<style>

  h4 {

    text-align: center;

    background-color: rgba(45, 45, 45, 0.1);

    padding: 10px;

    font-size: 27px;

  }

  p {

    text-align: justify;

  }

  .links {

    text-align: left;

    color: black;

  }

  .fullCard {

    width: 245px;

    border: 1px solid #ccc;

    border-radius: 5px;

    margin: 10px 5px;

    padding: 4px;

  #thumbnail: box-shadow: 0 10px 20px rgba(0,0,0,0.19), 0 6px 6px rgba(0,0,0,0.23);

  }

  .cardContent {

    padding: 10px;

  }

  .cardText {

    margin-bottom: 30px;

  }

</style>

<div class="fullCard" id="thumbnail">

  <div class="cardContent">

    <div class="cardText">

      <h4>Alphabet</h4>

    <div class="cardLinks">

I’ve edited your post for readability. When you enter a code block into a forum post, please precede it with a separate line of three backticks and follow it with a separate line of three backticks to make it easier to read.

You can also use the “preformatted text” tool in the editor (</>) to add backticks around text.

See this post to find the backtick on your keyboard.
Note: Backticks (`) are not single quotes (’).
