CSS CSS Selectors Going Further with Attribute Selectors and Pseudo-Classes Substring Matching Attribute Selectors Challenge

Why does the error about img element keep coming up?

Create a selector that targets an img element if its title value begins with "product-". Set the border color to lightblue.

My answer

img[src*="product"] { border-color: lightblue; }

/* Complete the challenge by writing CSS below */

img [src*="product"] {
border-color: lightblue;

yes I did try tilte^ but the answer was still the same targeting issue. I looked back in the to tutorial and src was the path. see my previous note. I believe that there must be a bug in the answer?

You really shouldn't ask the same question more than once. And why not fix the things I've already pointed out? Here's the whole list again:

  • the instructions say "title" but the attribute named here is "src"
  • the instructions say "begins with" but the symbol used here means "contains"
  • the instructions say "product-" but the string here is "product" (missing the "-" symbol)
  • and now there's a stray space between the "img" tag and the bracket

In case I didn't mention this before, the examples used in the videos will not be the same as the challenges. So the video might have shown a case where the "src" attribute was part of the selector, but the instructions for this challenge clearly say to use "title".

I finally got it right thank you.
