Finishing the CSS

Hi, I can't seem to complete this exercise. The question asks me to add a top border, and border color to the copyright id element. My CSS that I've added to the the css file on the exercise is:

hash-icon (obviously as the hash icon not text) copyright { border-top: 8px; border-color: #2A0400; }

Could you please explain where I'm going wrong?

You need to define what type of border (ie. dashed, dotted, solid). I would try using the border shorthand:

#copyright {
    border-top: 8px solid #2A0400;


It's asking you to define a top border, not a border all the way 'round. So, you'll want to use "border-top", not "border".

Ah, sorry, I see you've already done that. Try removing the "border-color" bit and just keep the hex color value.
