This is the variable name.

As you can see the names don’t match. Make sure to use the right variable.

Here’s the variable you are using:

background-color: var(--background-color1);

i want to get my linear-gradient attached to the property background but i find it difficult to pass throunh

Well, you are using a variable called --background-color1

background-color: var(--background-color1);

But there’s no such variable. :smile:
There is one however called --building-color1 :sparkles:
