Tell us what’s happening:
I keep getting this error message “Each of your Bootstrap buttons should be nested within its own div element with the class col-xs-4.” It appears to me that is the case. I have also looked back at other examples from this help forum. They seem to be the same as what I’m doing? Am I missing a space or other character somewhere?

Your code so far

<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;
  }
</style>

You’re not going to create new buttons. Rather, you’ll wrap the existing buttons below the cat picture in the proper <div>s.


#3

I am really trying to understand what you are trying to tell me. I followed the directions in the challenge. I am not quite understanding how to wrap the existing buttons around the cat picture. The directions do not put it in those terms.


#4

When you begin the challenge, there are already these three buttons (below the cat picture).

  <button class="btn btn-block btn-primary">Like</button>
  <button class="btn btn-block btn-info">Info</button>
  <button class="btn btn-block btn-danger">Delete</button>

And then the directions are

Put the Like, Info and Delete buttons side-by-side by nesting all three of them within one <div class="row"> element, then each of them within a <div class="col-xs-4"> element.

Your code almost did it, but you’re going to put the <div class="row"> and the <div class="col-xs-4"> around these buttons.

I now see the silly mistake I was making:stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:. Sorry about that. I was creating a whole new set of buttons instead of creating a div class around the existing buttons. I will try it now and let you know how it goes.
