Background errors in step 15

I get the following error: Oops, try again. Set the body's "background-size" to "cover".
Also, no background image has ever displayed.
Here is my code:

body {
text-align: center;
background: url(https://codecademy-content.s3.amazonaws.com/courses/web-beginner-en-3pc6w/images/splash.jpg");
background-position: center center;
background-size: cover;
background-repeat: no-repeat;
background-attachment: fixed;
color: white;
font-family: Helvetica;
}
