JavaScript jQuery Basics (2014) Creating a Simple Lightbox Creating and Appending Detached DOM elements

No idea what to do?

This is asking me to use .append(); I'm also assuming it's .append($modal)? It's saying I need to add this to the dismiss button? I have no idea what to do...

Also, can you let me know if my code isn't showing? I'm clicking attach code and it doesn't appear to be attaching it..

Thank you! I spent another 10 minutes trying it out, and got it finally! Thank you for your help!!

You only need to append the dismissButton to the $modal <br> under: <br> <!-- var $dismissButton = $("<button>Dismiss</button>"); --> <br> put this:<br> <!-- $modal.append($dismissButton); -->
