style doesn't let me pass

Hi,I am struck in CSS styling in fonts and colors as the challenge doesn't let me do the coding. the challenge is: Add the background texture.png from inside the img folder and set the background to repeat. My codes were: body { font-family: 'Nunito' 'sans-serif'; color: #FAF3BC ; background-color: #420600 ;'url(img/bg-texture.png)' 'repeat';

} The erroe I am getting is : Make sure you put the relative path to the image inside of 'url()'. PLease Help

The syntax for your background declaration isn't correct. CSS declarations should look like this:

property: value;

So instead of 'url(img/bg-texture.png)', it should say:

background-image: url(img/bg-texture.png);

Check out the w3schools page for CSS background properties.

The filename is texture.png not bg-texture.png

There should be another tab for the html document that relates to the css. Use those tabs to toggle back and forth.

Not working...it's under the topic : Build a simple website / Styling content/ fonts and colors /task 4.

Jackie Keiser is correct. Also, you don't need all the quotation marks in your CSS code.

It's still not working................

We're not big on giving the answers here, but in this case let me show you what we mean and maybe you can see what's different in your code:

body {
font-family: 'Nunito', sans-serif;
color: #FAF3BC;
background-color: #420600;
background:url(img/bg-texture.png) repeat;

My Challenge is to accomplish everyline single line in one task. Which is : body{ font-family: 'Nunito' sans-serif ; color: #FAF3BC ; background-color: #420600 ; background: url(img/bg-texture.png) repeat ; } But it shows me the bummer:Oops! It looks like Task 3 is no longer passing. Is this the editor's fault....?
