I need help.

I entered the text on this question as it appears in the hint, and it did not take it. Please show me where I was in error, and why.

at the both div tags.

Yup, Michele Smiraglia is giving you good advice. It's asking you to prepare the HTML for the CSS you'll add later, "We want the same CSS style to apply to both <div> elements."

You'll need to edit BOTH div elements, "Give both <div> elements the class of "favorite_stuff"."

The hint kind of gives it away:

<div class="favorite_stuff">

It keeps saying that I need to add class elements-I guess I am not doing that. Specifically, how do I do that?

<div class="favorite_stuff">

copy and paste this into the opening div tags and you should be good to go. Best of luck!

Thanks for your help. I am such a nube that I thought that the <h4> was the correct place to put it.

no worries, that's what we're here for! Also, I edited your comment so the <h4> would show up. Click 'edit answer' from the ... menu to see how to do it. Or watch the "Tips for asking questions" video to see how. Thanks for learning!

You are always so peppy! Is that natural, or are you over caffeinated or something? LOL Thanks for the help.
