Html Font-Color exercise

Question:Add the background texture.png from inside the img folder and set the background to repeat.

Answer:

/* Write your CSS below */

body {

font-family: 'Nunito', sans-serif; color: #FAF3BC; background-color: #420600; background: url ('img/texture.png') repeat;

}

Writing like that, it shows me a possible mistake about URL syntax but i can't find it.

Thanks for the help guys!

I believe the issue is that you have a space between url and the parentheses.

take the word "repeat" out and then add background-repeat: no-repeat;

Unfortunately this wouldn't work for this particular challenge because it was specifically looking for the background to be repeated.

Here is the code that I was able to pass with:

/* Write your CSS below */
body {
  background: url('img/texture.png') repeat;
  background-color: #420600;
  color: #FAF3BC;
  font-family: Nunito, sans-serif;
}

thanks Keith, i solved this exercise writing:

/* Write your CSS below */ body { background: #420600 url('img/texture.png') repeat; color: #FAF3BC; font-family: Nunito, sans-serif; }

:)

Combining all of those elements into a single background element is the method I would prefer as well. Good work!

It's easier to read also! if you're working hard for programming you too we can help each other :) i found you on Facebook!

Good luck!

Yikes, Keith, I meant to say repeat, not "no-repeat". Sorry if I confused him even more!
