Tribute Page - Build a Tribute Page

Tell us what’s happening:

I already have all my code written and working,
but when I put it to run and test it checks the entire checklist with positive checks, however it does not approve me.

Maybe someone could tell me what could be going on?

Your code so far

        <h2 id="subtitle">Here's a time line of Dr. Borlaug's life:</h2>
          <li><strong>1914</strong> - Born in Cresco, Iowa</li>

          <li><strong>1933</strong> - Leaves his family's farm to attend the University of Minnesota, thanks to a Depression era program known as the "National Youth Administration"</li>

          <li><strong>1935</strong> - Has to stop school and save up more money. Works in the Civilian Conservation Corps, helping starving Americans. "I saw how food changed them", he said. "All of this left scars on me."</li>

          <li><strong>1937</strong> - Finishes university and takes a job in the US Forestry Service</li>

          <li><strong>1938</strong> - Marries wife of 69 years Margret Gibson. Gets laid off due to budget cuts. Inspired by Elvin Charles Stakman, he returns to school study under Stakman, who teaches him about breeding pest-resistent plants.</li>

          <li><strong>1941</strong> - Tries to enroll in the military after the Pearl Harbor attack, but is rejected. Instead, the military asked his lab to work on waterproof glue, DDT to control malaria, disinfectants, and other applied science.</li>

          <li><strong>1942</strong> - Receives a Ph.D. in Genetics and Plant Pathology</li>

          <li><strong>1944</strong> - Rejects a 100% salary increase from Dupont, leaves behind his pregnant wife, and flies to Mexico to head a new plant pathology program. Over the next 16 years, his team breeds 6,000 different strains of disease resistent wheat - including different varieties for each major climate on Earth.</li>

          <li><strong>1945</strong> - Discovers a way to grown wheat twice each season, doubling wheat yields</li>

          <li><strong>1953</strong> - crosses a short, sturdy dwarf breed of wheat with a high-yeidling American breed, creating a strain that responds well to fertilizer. It goes on to provide 95% of Mexico's wheat.</li>

          <li><strong>1962</strong> - Visits Delhi and brings his high-yielding strains of wheat to the Indian subcontinent in time to help mitigate mass starvation due to a rapidly expanding population</li>

          <li><strong>1970</strong> - receives the Nobel Peace Prize</li>

          <li><strong>1983</strong> - helps seven African countries dramatically increase their maize and sorghum yields</li>

          <li><strong>1984</strong> - becomes a distinguished professor at Texas A&M University</li>

          <li><strong>2005</strong> - states "we will have to double the world food supply by 2050." Argues that genetically modified crops are the only way we can meet the demand, as we run out of arable land. Says that GM crops are not inherently dangerous because "we've been genetically modifying plants and animals for a long time. Long before we called it science, people were selecting the best breeds."</li>

          <li><strong>2009</strong> - dies at the age of 95.</li>

The challenge seed code and/or your solution exceeded the maximum length we can port over from the challenge.

You will need to take an additional step here so the code you wrote presents in an easy to read format.

Please copy/paste all the editor code showing in the challenge from where you just linked.

Replace these two sentences with your copied code.
Please leave the ``` line above and the ``` line below,
because they allow your code to properly format in the post.

I’ve edited your code 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 (').

When I run the test with you code, it looks like you are failing three tests that deal with CSS.

You will need to write the CSS in order to pass those tests

I just don’t understand why I keep getting the message that I need to have “Your img element should have a display of block.” if I already have
what am I doing wrong?

  • you have duplicated ids: id="title"
  • <div id="tribute-info"> doesn’t have the closing tag
  • </main> tag doesn’t have the opening tag

Look closely at what you wrote here

You first wrote that it should be display block but then immediately overrode that to set it to flex instead.

If you remove that second selector, then the tests should pass.

Hope that helps!
