Exercise: “Using the type attribute selector, try to give the checkboxes in CatPhotoApp a top margin of 10px and a bottom margin of 15px.” For some reason, it isn’t accepting my code…

<link href="https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Lobster" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css">
<style>
  .red-text {
    color: red;
  }

  h2 {
    font-family: Lobster, monospace;
  }

  p {
    font-size: 16px;
    font-family: monospace;
  }

  .thick-green-border {
    border-color: green;
    border-width: 10px;
    border-style: solid;
    border-radius: 50%;
  }

  .smaller-image {
    width: 100px;
  }

  .silver-background {
    background-color: silver;

   input[type='checkbox'] {
      margin-top:10px;
      margin-bottom:15px;
    }
  }
</style>

<h2 class="red-text">CatPhotoApp</h2>
<main>
  <p class="red-text">Click here to view more <a href="#">cat photos</a>.</p>
  
  <a href="#"><img class="smaller-image thick-green-border" src="https://bit.ly/fcc-relaxing-cat" alt="A cute orange cat lying on its back."></a>
  
  <div class="silver-background">
    <p>Things cats love:</p>
    <ul>
      <li>cat nip</li>
      <li>laser pointers</li>
      <li>lasagna</li>
    </ul>
    <p>Top 3 things cats hate:</p>
    <ol>
      <li>flea treatment</li>
      <li>thunder</li>
      <li>other cats</li>
    </ol>
  </div>
  
  <form action="/submit-cat-photo" id="cat-photo-form">
    <label><input type="radio" name="indoor-outdoor" checked> Indoor</label>
    <label><input type="radio" name="indoor-outdoor"> Outdoor</label><br>
    <label><input type="checkbox" name="personality" checked> Loving</label>
    <label><input type="checkbox" name="personality"> Lazy</label>
    <label><input type="checkbox" name="personality"> Energetic</label><br>
    <input type="text" placeholder="cat photo URL" required>
    <button type="submit">Submit</button>
  </form>
</main>

Write the code in single property like this.

margin: 10px 0 15px 0;

I copy pasted your code and it didn’t work, after that I resetted the challenge and simply typed the same thing as you’ve typed:

  input[type='checkbox'] {
    margin-top: 10px;
    margin-bottom: 15px;
  }

And it worked.

I think the difference is the space after the colon (:).

hey tev97,
i checked your coding, you have done all thing right only the mistake is missing of a bracket in css .

check your code here that

 .silver-background {
    background-color: silver;

   input[type='checkbox'] {
      margin-top:10px;
      margin-bottom:15px;
    }

you forgot to put ending curly bracket for .silver-background just close it.

.silver-background {
    background-color: silver;
  }

now enjoy,
click it as solution, if it solved your issue
