Hi there, Miles Felton Gerber! Close, but not quite! On the last step, it asks you to give the div the class of "main-content" then select it and change the background color to ivory. Instead of giving it a class of "main-content", you have given it the id of "main-content". On your <div> we're expecting to see <div class="main-content"> and a rule for .main-content as opposed to #main-content.

Hope this helps! :sparkles:
