I've entered the code and I'm getting an error saying I haven't changed the h1 element to white

I've entered the code a few different ways: h1 { color: fff; } and h1, h2 { color: fff; } Either way I get an error.

css/main.css
a {
  text-decoration: none;
}

#wrapper {
  max-width: 940px;
  margin: 0 auto;
}

#logo {
  text-align: center;
  margin: 0;
}
h1 {
  color: fff;
}
h2 {
  color: fff;
}

You're missing the "#" on your colors.

h1 {
  color: #fff;
}
h2 {
  color: #fff;
}

Julian is correct, any time you use color it must always start with #.

A hexidecimal color has to start with a #. You can also use a defined name of a color like blue or rgb() or rgba(). Those later types do not use a #.
