CSS Layout Techniques: Flexbox Layout Challenge (HELP!)

I watched the videos and completely understood, or so I thought. Now, the challenge is asking me to change the order of the columns in flexbox.

Here is my code:

    .secondary {
    display: flex;
        order: -1;
}

I am pretty sure this is supposed to work, cause nothing in the videos would indicate otherwise...

If I did something wrong please let me know!

You need to remove the display: flex; from .secondary. "A flex container expands items to fill available free space, or shrinks them to prevent overflow," so you only need to add display: flex; to the containing element.

Wow, I don't know why I didn't try that. Guess I was a little frustrated that whatever else I tried didn't work... Thanks a million! :)
