Code Challenge: More Text Properties 2

So the prompt is "The link's container is set to hide its overflow and it's not allowing the text to wrap, so the link appears to be cut off. Select the paragraph with the class 'link' and set its text overflow to display an ellipsis."

And my code is:

p.link { text-overflow: ellipses; }

I for the life of me cannot figure this one out!

You didn't spell ellipsis correctly in your CSS. You used an "e" instead of and "i".

Well, that's rather embarrassing... Thanks for pointing that out Kevin.

Naw, incredibly common and easy to do. Took me a few passes over to catch it myself.

You're welcome.

Haha I imagine. How long did it take you to earn all those badges, if you dont mind me asking.

I don't mind you asking.

I joined on 4/4/13, so almost a month to earn what I have earned.

Seriously?! I think I joined around that time too. Kudos mate, that's a lot of work haha. Were you familiar with coding before?

Thank you.

I was sorta familiar with coding. I am a product designer by degree, but kinda stumbled into web coding to help a friend August 2012. As of then I knew nothing. Struggled through a lot of it, I then started at www.codecademy.com/, and eventually worked my way over here.

I really only knew very basic HTML and CSS. Even just a month or two ago. Now I understand both of those pretty well I think, and JQuery/Javascript and PHP are just now starting to click. After that I'll tackle Ruby and Python. Than who knows!

To be fair, I do a lot of this while at work. I constantly rebuild and maintain 4 basic but separate websites where I work, so it benefits me, and my employer as I get faster and more advanced.

Yeah I was also on codeacademy when I stumbled on here. The organization, videos and resources trumps other websites, in my opinion. I hope server-side programming is as fun as coding haha.

I agree, CA is great for a free resource, but it can't compete, and that's good from Treehouse.

I've found server side programming more fun than coding, because things start happening dynamically, it's cool to see it happen!

Have fun, and good luck!

Thanks mate! I'll keep that in mind when I attempt to learn server side programming. One step closer to starting my web design business!

I wish you success in your future endeavors as well. Thanks for the help!
