Tribute page help here

Continuing the discussion from How To Get Help When You Are Stuck:

Your title says Tribute page help, but you have not explained in detail what help you need. Also, we would need to see your existing Tribute page code to understand your explanation of what the problem is. Preferably, you would provide a Codepen or JSFiddle link to your code.

Do you have a codepen with your code? Once you pass the tests you can submit the link to the codepen

@W_E_l_C_O_M_E In the future, please don’t ask questions related to your own project on a thread which was related to someone’s else’s project. It is always best to create your own topic, so you can have your own thread for discussion and does not disrupt or add on unrelated discussion to the original topic’s thread.

Thank you.

Hi, everybody! My name is Dimitrii and i am new here. Can I ask you for help? I dont understand how clean the space inside h2 and p below on the picture…
Thank you so much! :slight_smile:

If you want help you will make it easier if you post the link to the codepen and not a screenshot, and open your own thread instead of posting in someone else thread

I’ve tried to post the link, but after I’ve tried to do that I’ve resived this message:
“For security reasons, you can’t include links in your posts yet. Use the freeCodeCamp forum a bit more to unlock this ability.”

Just create a new topic and post the part after https://codepen.io in the URL. For example: /sdfjhkhsdfsdf/pen/ajHgvB

Bossman i’m new here my image is not appearing how can you help me
