Been doing this excercise so many times I'm sure I'm getting further away from solving it! please help!!

I had to add the grid and omega to the featured cupcake element which I assume is the image??

<body>
  <div class="container clearfix">
  <div id="featured-cupcake">
    <h2>Cupcake of the Week</h2>
    </div>
    <div class="grid_5 omega">
    <img src="img/featured-cupcake.jpg">
  </div>
</body>

Your "container" and "clearfix" div should go all the way around the "featured-cupcake" div. Look at where it starts an ends. Take out the "grid_5" "omega" div too.

Did you try this?

<div id="featured-cupcake" class="grid_5 omega">

Is your grid.css file linked properly?

lol missed the exercise part :)

Claire, I'm stuck in the same question. I've decided to give it a rest for a day then revisit tomorrow. I've watched the video a couple of times and I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong either. I will try what Chase James posted...maybe that will do the trick.

Good luck! :)

Could you give me a link to the code challenge that your having problems with.

Stage 3 Challenge task 1 of 2 Add a div around the featured-cupcake element, and give it the classes and clearfix.

This is what I typed <div class= "container clearfix">

The code you posted looks incorrect from the start because it's missing a closing tag for the first div. I would imagine that the image of the cupcake should be placed inside the "featured-cupcake" div. Basically what they are asking for you to do is create a div around the "featured-cupcake" div. Said div should have the classes "container" and "clearfix".
