Frameworks Basics How To Hide Modal Until It Is Triggered

I need help with the challenge in the Frameworks Basics course. It asks to give the div a modal class from Foundations to hide the modal until it is triggered. It should be the line with the vidModal class and where I wrote reveal-modal to try it out, with some other coding. It all came back as an error though, so how do I do this?

You've got the right idea, you just need the reveal-modal flag as a class. The vidModal bit is the ID for the element, so you'll need to add a class to the existing div.

<div id="vidModal" class="reveal-modal">
