Hi Marcus, in the previous video at about 05:15, Nick shows how to change the color of h1 and h2 elements.

For example:

h1, h2 {
  color: #000;

I have tried it this way several times and it doesn't seem to be working. I don't know what to do here.

Nevermind!! I fixed it, thank you!

Hi Marcus,

Just add the following to your CSS file:

  color:#000; //change to your preferred color

  color:#CCC; //change to your preferred color

If you want your h1 & h2 elements to be the same color you could also do the following:

h1, h2{
  color:#000; //change to your preferred color

Hope this solves your problem :)

thank you!! I was losing it lol!
