Trouble with Using Attribute Selectors to Style Elements

I have been stuck on this problem with the attribute selectors for a while. I have looked up videos and followed the hints to see if I could get it right but Code Camp says I have it wrong…

margin: 10px 0px 15px 0px;

I have this typed into my style element but its saying that its wrong and the margins are not changing either. Some help would be much appreciated!

Your code so far

<link href="" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css">
.red-text {
  color: red;

h2 {
  font-family: Lobster, monospace;

p {
  font-size: 16px;
  font-family: monospace;

.thick-green-border {
  border-color: green;
  border-width: 10px;
  border-style: solid;
  border-radius: 50%;

.smaller-image {
  width: 100px;

.silver-background {
  background-color: silver;
margin: 10px 0px 15px 0px;


<h2 class="red-text">CatPhotoApp</h2>
<p class="red-text">Click here to view more <a href="#">cat photos</a>.</p>

<a href="#"><img class="smaller-image thick-green-border" src="" alt="A cute orange cat lying on its back."></a>

<div class="silver-background">
  <p>Things cats love:</p>
    <li>cat nip</li>
    <li>laser pointers</li>
  <p>Top 3 things cats hate:</p>
    <li>flea treatment</li>
    <li>other cats</li>

<form action="" id="cat-photo-form">
  <label><input type="radio" name="indoor-outdoor" checked> Indoor</label>
  <label><input type="radio" name="indoor-outdoor"> Outdoor</label><br>
  <label><input type="checkbox" name="personality" checked> Loving</label>
  <label><input type="checkbox" name="personality"> Lazy</label>
  <label><input type="checkbox" name="personality"> Energetic</label><br>
  <input type="text" placeholder="cat photo URL" required>
  <button type="submit">Submit</button>

Challenge: Use Attribute Selectors to Style Elements

Link to the challenge:

Hello and welcome to the freeCodeCamp community~!

Currently you are trying to select all elements with an attribute type="checkboxes". There are no such elements on the page - but there is something similar. Do you see what this selector should be?

Thanks for responding! and no, i dont understand what it should be… should it be type=‘radio’‘checkboxes’ ?
Im sorry if that sounds stupid, I just really dont know :frowning:

Take a look at your HTML. You are trying to select the checkboxes, right? What type value do they have?

They have the type as radio. Does that mean I need to use radio instead of checkboxes?

Those would be the radio buttons, not the checkbox buttons. :slight_smile:

I’ve figured it out! You have to make them for both! Thank you so much for your help!

you don’t need to use it for both, you just need to match the correct type value
