background image displays as white... not my image...

I've inserted my image URL as per instructions, but nothing renders. I've even moved it away from dropbox so that it's not a https url, it's now totally public. But still can't seem to make it display... help please! :)

Link to screenshot of my HTML & CSS tags..

Kylie, you wrote

instead of
after background-color:("https.....
Maybe that's the mistake?

I have the same problem: with the change of the background-color my page turns white and there's no image. I tried a few other images and 3 browser so far. What did I miss?

<!DOCTYPE html>

body {
text-align: center;
background-color: url("");
color: white;
font-family: Helvetica;
