I wrote the @if/else but I've got this quoted error "The generated file needs to end with '.png'."

Hi, I wrote the @if/else but I've got this quoted error "The generated file needs to end with '.png'.."

Did I miss something in the code?!

1 Answer

I was able to get the challenge to pass. Did you write the code for the fourth stage underneath the code for the rest of the stages?

This code worked for me:

// first stage
@mixin cars($make, $color) {
  // second stage
  .#{$make} {
    border: 1px solid black;
    background-image: url("#{$color}.png"); // third stage

// fourth stage
$time: morning;

a {
  @if $time == morning {
    color: red;
  @else if $time == afternoon {
    color: blue;
  @else {
    color: gray;

Thanks for your answer. Yes, I did.

Well, the second time I wrote the code, it told me that I've to define $time variable. the differences I made are: 1- $ time: "morning";

2- @if $time == "morning" { a {color: red;} } @else if $time == "afternoon" { a {color: blue;} } @else { a{color: gray;} }

Sorry about that; your answer should've passed. Glad to hear I could help!
