just need a little help

I am having a little trouble making the CSS color change in my workspace to blue. Any tips? My work looks just like Nick’s transcript, so I am a little frustrated.

Can you put your code in your post ?


h1 {color: blue;}

</style> <h1>scicence and design collective</h1>

is this for a challenge? which one ? Try

<style> h1 {color:blue; } </style>

I mean your code should be surrounded by brackets...

what you typed and what I typed are the same.

1) i was having trouble when i was changing the color to green in the challenge 2) i am having trouble getting the text to change colors in my workspace

sorry i edited so you could see the actual code (but that won't pass a specific challenge), but if you paste the link to the challenge it would help getting you the right answer...

but what about workspace?

<body> <style>h1{color:green;}<\style> <h1>Nick Pettit</h1> </body>

this is exactly what i have. it will not say that this is correct in the challenge. furthermore it will NOT allow me to move on to the next set of videos. this is very frustrating. Can you please pass me on to someone that is able to fix the problem?

What is the matter here?
