CSS CSS Basics (2014) The Box Model Padding, Borders, and Margins

Padding, border, and margin code challenge problems

The code challenge is asking me to set the top padding to 80px and the bottom to 70px, but it keeps telling me I'm doing it wrong. What am I doing wrong? I've tried it two different ways:

div .secondary-content { padding-top: 80px; padding-bottom: 70px; }


div .secondary-content { padding: 80px 0px 70px; }

Any ideas where I'm going wrong here?

1 Answer

try removing the space between div and .secondary-content.

div.secondary-content { padding: 80px 0 70px; }

Perfect. Thank you! So simple but I was stuck on that for over an hour.
