Hi,

I wonder what is wrong with this. When I run this code, its says:“The type attribute selector should be used to select the checkboxes.” I checked an example on this forum from previous discussion chain, which did same as I, but still this code does not work.

Fort margins I also tried:

margin: 10px 0px 15px 0px

So here is the code as a whole:

<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>

The margin part seems to be right, because it shows green answer for these:
The top margins of the checkboxes should be 10px.
The bottom margins of the checkboxes should be 15px.

Sorry, I found the answer and got it right by deleting the input word from one part. If somebody knows, why does deleting the input word make so big difference?

I mean choosing this:

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

instead of this version:

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

Hello. Thanks for asking this question. Could anyone please help me find a solution for this test??

What I found here doesn’t seem to be working for me.

I keep getting the following error:

// running test
The top margins of the checkboxes should be 10px.
The bottom margins of the checkboxes should be 15px.
// tests completed

Thanks in advance!

Ok, guys, was racking my brain to find solution to this. And all it was, was a matter of whitespace. Not that it should matter in actual coding, but for the system to accept it, make sure not to put any spaces in your
attribute selector.
[type=‘checkbox’] {…}
