Button style

The button example he's using doesn't exist anymore on bootstrap. The only option close makes the button transparent until the mouse hovers over it. Any way to fix that?

            <button class="btn btn-primary" type="button">Sign Up!</button>

The code in the <body> tags should be the same.

However in the <head> tags I have updated the <link> tag with the Bootstrap to use the most current version at this time.

Hope this helps!

Can you provide a snippet of your markup? The current Bootstrap docs show the same button examples that Guil uses in the video, but my guess is that maybe you're using btn-outline-primary instead of btn-primary, which does give you a transparent button until it's hovered over (which looks great on white, but not so good on another shade of blue).

Let me know if that change doesn't work!
