CSS Class Styling

CSS Class Styling


Tell us what’s happening:

Can someone help me with this lesson? I have “passed” the following:

  1. Your h2 element should have the class red-text.
  2. Your stylesheet should declare a red-text class and have its color set to red.
  3. Do not use inline style declarations like style=“color: red” in your h2 element.

But the lesson says I have failed “Your h2 element should be red.”

Your code so far

  h2 .red-text {
    color: red;

<h2 class="red-text">CatPhotoApp</h2>
  <p>Click here to view more <a href="#">cat photos</a>.</p>
  <a href="#"><img src="https://bit.ly/fcc-relaxing-cat" alt="A cute orange cat lying on its back."></a>
    <p>Things cats love:</p>
      <li>cat nip</li>
      <li>laser pointers</li>
    <p>Top 3 things cats hate:</p>
      <li>flea treatment</li>
      <li>other cats</li>
  <form action="/submit-cat-photo">
    <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>

Link to the challenge:


remove the h2 completely in your css. Like so.
.red-text { color: red; }
You don’t need to add the h2 to this as you are styling the element via the class in css. You can do the same vice versa remove the .red-text and just have h2 it is doing the same thing except, by using a class and styling that only, means that only the elements in the page that have a
<div class="red-text">class name used</div>
will be affected and not all h2 that are in the page.
