Hello ive added .addClass(“animated bounce”) but still unsure what .addClass means? does it add a class like css? or what am i missing here?

Your code so far

Also, check the documentation. jQuery has pretty good docs.


Adding to @lasjorg, If you have a problem with anything, try to refer to each respective Documentations first, because most of the times they are clear and understandable. Then when you start to get confused, you can try to ask other Coders about the topic. Just a friendly reminder!!

Stay Safe, and Happy Coding !!:slight_smile:
