Problem with lesson #25 in Basic HTML and HTML5 module

Tell us what’s happening:
I’ve added the checked attribute correctly but when I run the code test, it tells me I should not change the inner text of the two label tags. I didn’t change the inner text.

  **Your code so far**

This is showing up as Correct on my Browser. Are you using Dark mode?

Dark mode, some browsers Extensions, and having the zoom set to anything other than 100% on the browser can effect the tutorials.

Hi Alless. No, I am not using Dark Mode. I am using Chrome. Are you using a different browser?

I am on chrome as well.

The Moderator @kevinSmith May be able to Walk you through how to fix this Situation better than I can.

I can confirm that it passes for me too.

Hi Alless. No, I am not using Dark Mode. I am using Chrome. Are you using a different browser?

Dark mode is a setting, not a specific browser. Chrome has a dark mode setting.

Yes, things like dark mode, night mode, certain accessibility features, and certain browser extensions can mess with tests. Try shutting them off and see if it helps.

Since this is text and DOM element based, and not color based, I would not expect dark mode to affect the test. But who knows…

If none of that works, try rebooting, resetting the browser cache, try a different browser, etc.

If none of that works, just back out of this challenge and move onto the next.

Thank you both for the quick responses. Much appreciated.

I do understand the dark mode setting vs browser detail you mention. I verified the issue is occurring in both Chrome and Edge so far. I guess I’m going to have to skip it and move on. Any way to pull the certificate for completion?

Thanks again!

I don’t understand the question. If you’re worried if that will affect the certificate, I think it only cares about the projects.

Thanks Kevin. I’m new to this site so I wasn’t sure how it worked. Really appreciate your help.

And of course, If there were any problems obtaining your Certificate, you could always try to Log in on a Secondary device, like your Phone, and Complete any uncompleted Questions…
