Hi Eilidh, can you post your code so we can see what's going on?

Eilidh, your code passes fine on my end. On a side note (and not that it has to do with passing the challenge), the first link should be a Twitter account. :smiley:

If it's still not passing, try refreshing the page.

Thank you! I dont have a twitter so I just put a random website. I dont know why its not passing me... I've tried it multiple times :(

Make sure you didn't remove any of the other code.

Its weird... its saying I did it correctly now, but it also keeps saying something went wrong and it wants me to restart the challenge again. also, nothing shows up when I try to preview the website.

Eilidh, maybe try another web browser, or another challenge and see if the problem persists. If all else fails, I can suggest contacting support to have this checked out for you. Sorry about the trouble—your code is correct—just make sure you have the rest of it. :smiley:

I'm also experiencing the same issue on the exact same point.
Quite odd but i also have the same issue when i preview the same code in a workspace. The twitter and facebook images dont appear in the previewer, despite the code being correct, then the workspace crashes when you try to expand the img folder to check you have the image links right. It brings up a box stating that i've been disconnected from it, then reloads.

I've tried this on my pc and laptop with both chrome and IE (on both) and it seems to be the same. I've contacted support by mail but thought i'd throw this in here to show its not just happening to 1 person :)

Tagging Nick Pettit to double check the issue. Hope it gets resolved soon for you.

yes, thats exactly what is happening to me! It tells me to contact support but wont let me click on the link. I just skipped it and went onto the next couple of challenges and it allowed me to pass, so I dont know whats wrong. I will try contacting support too.

Dustin Matlock, did you end up figuring it out?

I'm honestly not sure if they were having issues with that. My guess is that if it's on their end, someone knows about it, and it'll be fixed soon.

yeah Im thinkin the same thing. I emailed them about it also. I'll let you know if I figure it out!
