Is it not loading the page itself? Or is it telling you your code is incorrect. You must add the class "main-pg" to the p element in order for this to work. Otherwise it may be a problem with your connection.

<!doctype html> <html> <head> <link href="styles.css" rel="stylesheet"> </head> <body>

<p class="main-pg">My amazing website</p>

</body> </html>

Hi James, It doesn't seem to be a connection issue (I have high speed) and am able to move on t=with the other videos. I added the class to the element. The problem is that the system will not process the answer: when I click check work, the system says "working" but doesn't process "Correct" or "Bummer" as it normally does. Not thing occurs. Can you suggest anything else? Thanks in advance

POST SCRIPT: ...now, having bypassed that task for the sake of time and viewed the subsequent video section, I've come to another quiz. The system is having the same problem. After selecting my answer (in this case either A, B, or C) answer and clicking choose answer button, The system will not process the answers given. Please help.

Hi Robin,

Everything is working fine for me. Did you install some funky plugins on your browser lately? Are you working with screenreaders? A touch screen perhaps? Did you try working with a different browser than your main one?

Hi Max ~ It is now resolved ...... It was mainly the fact that I was using Safari w/a plugin issue. I swtiched to Firefox and all is well! :) Thanks a million
