Tell us what’s happening:

should rather be :

h2 {
    font-family: Lobster;
  }

Cheers!

Hi,
in the challenge https://learn.freecodecamp.org/responsive-web-design/basic-css/import-a-google-font, you just have to add an h2 css element with no degrade font. So just delete your “open sans” font in your css.

thanks :slightly_smiling_face:


#5

Thanks. I did a similar thing.

Kind of annoying that a “correct” answer isn’t accepted , but I guess there are limitations to the system’s automated code-correction mechanisms.

Still. the fact that the lesson explicitly discusses the potential value of including a fallback font, it seems unfortunate that the system then punishes a student (or at least confuses a student) for giving this a whirl.

.red-text { color: red; } h2 { font-family: Lobster; }

p
{
font-family: “monospace”;
}

I’ve done it this way and it still doesn’t work. I don’t have a clue about what I’m doing wrong. I’ve tried it every way that I can think of. Aggravating.


#8

I found my mistake…I didn’t close my brackets on the css rule above this declaration…pretty stupid.


#9

There is also another issue here where if you dont use a semicolon at the end it won’t go through. The last css rule within style brackets should work fine without semicolon.


#10

As far as I can tell I’ve entered the code correctly. My CatPhotoApp text has changed to the new font.

However, it won’t let me progress when I run the tests it says “use a h2 selector to change the font”

Anyone else getting this issue? My code below. Please let me know if you spot anything wrong:

h2 {
font-size: 30px;
font-family: Lobster;
}


#11

Please ignore the above. I found the answer. It had specified the font size too. The test don’t let you pass with the font size specified. Once I removed I was able to move on to the next task.


#12

Hello,
I have the same problem, I have added the h2 selector in the css correctly, it works on display but the system just won’t let me pass to the next lesson !

.red-text { color: red; } p { font-size: 16px; font-family: monospace; } h2{ font-family : Lobster; }

#13

Edit : The mistake was a space left between the family-name":" and the points lol


#14

you should remove the class h2 red-text and live it like that

h2 {

font-family: Lobster;

}
