CSS CSS Basics (2014) Basic Layout Styling the "Wildlife" div with Background Properties

Challenge Not Accepting Answer

Hi, I'm trying to pass a code challenge and it does not seem to be accepting my answer. I am almost positive that it is correct because I entered it in the same syntax as the workspace version (that worked correctly)

Anyhow, the code I'm entering is:

.wildlife { background-image: url('../img/bear.jpg') }

And it keeps telling me it is in a different folder, so I need to use the url() property.

Any help would be appreciated!

/* Complete the challenge by writing CSS below */

.wildlife {
  background-image: url('../img/bear.jpg');
<!DOCTYPE html>
    <title>Lake Tahoe</title>
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="page.css">
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="style.css">
        <div class="primary-content t-border">
            <p class="intro">
                Lake Tahoe is one of the most breathtaking attractions located in California. It's home to a number of ski resorts, summer outdoor recreation, and tourist attractions. Snow and skiing are a significant part of the area's reputation.
            <a class="callout" href="#more">Find out more</a>
      <div class="wildlife">
        <h2>Check out all the Wildlife</h2>
          As spawning season approaches, the fish acquire a humpback and protuberant jaw. After spawning, they die and their carcasses provide a feast for gatherings of <a href="#mink">mink</a>, <a href="#bears">bears</a>, and <a href="#eagles">bald eagles</a>.
      </div><!-- End .wildlife -->
            <a class="callout" href="#wildlife">See the Wildlife</a>
        </div><!-- End .primary-content -->

Here is the error message I getting:

Bummer! Since the style sheet is not in a separate folder, make sure you're using 'url()' to set the background image value to 'img/bear.jpg'.

try removing the two dots after "url" in this line: background-image: url('../img/bear.jpg');

background-image: url('/img/bear.jpg');

The reason that I say that is a lot of people make the mistake of adding the two dots in there when the img folder is in the same directory.

That worked!

I didn't even see the part where it said "same" directory. We practiced going into different directory during the course, so I was assuming it was that.

Thanks Jeremy!

I'm glad you got it! You're welcome :)
