Stuck on second part of the challenge

I need to create a compass linear-gradient from top to bottom with the colors #3d69b5 as a starting color and #1a335e as an end color. For some reason, my code is not working and I don't actually know why.

body {
  @include background(linear-gradient(top, #3d69b5, #1a335e));
}

What am I doing wrong here?

Hello Kleo, This question came up in a previous Forum question. The answer was to eliminate the "top" from the parameters. Follow this link to see the original post or copy your code and paste it into your browser for a search:

Thank you Anna, removing the top from the parameter worked!
