Hey Daniel Mohr! I am taking a look at the code for the section you are on and it looks like there might be an issue with code that is written in the layout.html file. I used your code from the builder.html and while the line is red, it isn't what is throwing the error on my end. Check your layout.html file and see if it looks similar to this:

        <div class="wrap no-bottom messages bg-{{ saves.get('colors', 'black') }}">
            {% with messages = get_flashed_messages() %}
            {% if messages %}
            <ul class="flashes">
                {% for message in messages %}
                <li>{{ message }}</li>
                {% endfor %}
            {% endwith %}

If so, there needs to be an endif to close out the if statement right above the endwith. Give that a try. If that doesn't solve the problem, send over a snapshot link to your workspace and I can dig into your code and see what the issue might be.

oh thank you so much. that worked:)
