Tell us what’s happening:

Your code so far


<link href="https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Lobster" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css">

  .red-text {

#2

Would you specify as to what your problem is?


#3

The issue is within your style tags you put “#cat-photo-element” instead of “#cat-photo-form.” Kind of think it’s stupid for them to reference cat-photo-element in tutorial and cat-photo-form in challenge but whatever.


#4

Because it forces the camper to not just copy/paste. It makes the user have to read the requirements and follow through. That is a huge part of development. Being able to take instructions and follow them exactly is part of the job.

Oh yeah, of course I agree. When I do the lesson I read it first and make sure I understand everything and then type all the code without looking at the lesson (obviously I look back occasionally but I think this is the best method of learning.) I misspoke in my comment, what I meant was, they should have named the class something completely unrelated to avoid confusion. Just my opinion though <3
